The dispute resolution process begins with a client or party making an application or request to the Yukon Dispute Resolution Board. The Board of Directors then decides whether the issue is one that is within the mandate of the Yukon Dispute Resolution Board under Chapter 26 of the Umbrella Final Agreement (“UFA”). In preparation for the mediation, each of the parties will be expected to complete a Mediation Disclosure Form in which they will describe the issues of the mediation referral and provide copies of any documents that might assist the mediator and the other parties. The first four hours of the mediator’s fees shall be the responsibility of the Yukon Dispute Resolution Board. Thereafter, the mediator’s fees shall be borne equally by the parties to the mediation. The mediation session shall not exceed four hours unless the mediator and the parties to the dispute agree to continue with the process. All administration and travel expenses incurred by the mediator shall be at the discretion and approval of the Yukon Dispute Resolution Board. A complete copy of the DRB Mediation Rules & Procedures is available for download from this site.
