FSCO Mediation Backlog Will Soon Be Eliminated

Between 2007 and 2012 FSCO experienced an unprecedented 99 per cent increase in Applications for Mediation (from 14281 to 28,389), which resulted in a substantial backlog of files.

FSCO successfully implemented an aggressive action plan to address the backlog. This included initiatives such as the eCalendar, Consent Failures, mandatory settlement blitz days, and the use of a private service provider to supplement FSCO’s mediation and arbitration services. As a result, the mediation backlog has been substantially reduced from 29,142 files at the end of March 2012. In fact, the backlog will be eliminated by the end of August 2013.
