Welcome

PAUL BROWN MEDIATION was established in 2009 by you guessed it, Paul Brown, with a vision of helping people through challenging times and difficult transitions in their lives. At that time, Paul was working in Child Welfare as a Child Protection Worker, and felt that he would be more effective at helping families move forward with their lives as a Family Mediator.

“Helping Families is why we do this work.” – Paul James Brown (Guide To Child Protection Mediation, Second Edition)

Paul recognized early in his “helping” career that by engaging people in their own decision-making, more sustainable change was developed. By becoming a mediator and then coaching other mediators, Paul has been able to help many families create better long-term outcomes for themselves, and more importantly, for their children.

“Families are about relationships; not the law.” – Honourable Justice Gloria J. Epstein
