The AMFQ launches an innovative pilot project for
mediation involving protective supervision

The Association de Médiation Familiale du Québec (AMFQ) has initiated a pilot project to use mediation in disputes related to people in need of protective supervision, or who are in the process of being declared legally incapable and who require supervised protection. 

Thanks to a subsidy from the Fond d’Accès Justice overseen by the Justice Minister of Québec, this pilot project allows free mediation sessions for caregivers and families of those who have been declared legally incapable, or who are in the process of being declared as such.

When a conflict may compromise the setting up of a protective measure with a mandatary, a curatorship, a tutorship or a protective supervision with an advisor; or when a conflict ensues after the measures have already been applied, then those who are involved in the dispute may call upon the AMFQ’s referral service. Professionals involved with these families may also refer them to this new service.

Participation in the mediation is voluntary. If those involved agree to mediate their dispute, they will be referred to family mediators who have received specialized three-day training for these types of conflict. If the health condition of the person declared legally incapable, or who will soon be declared as such, allows it, this person may also participate in the mediation session.

The financial assistance available is for a maximum of 10 hours of mediation services per group.  The hours are subdivided as follows: maximum of 5 participants may have an individual preliminary meeting with the mediator, for up to one hour each; maximum of 3 hours of mediation sessions; and a maximum of 2 hours of work performed by the mediator which is not included in the previous two items, such as writing a summary of the agreements.

This service is available for the current year, 2018, throughout Quebec. We estimate that approximately 40 families will benefit from this subsidised mediation offer. The Public Curator of Québec is a collaborator in the project.
