Dymphny Dronyk, Q.Med, is a Qualified Mediator on the Alberta Justice Civil Court Resolution Services roster and has been a member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Institute of Alberta (ADRIA) since 1999.
Mediation is a guided negotiation in a safe and respectful environment where parties can discuss what really matters to them, and find ways to resolve their conflict together.
Mediation helps parties mitigate and avoid the high costs and adversarial environment of litigation.
She has served as a mediator for multi-party development-related disputes, for landowner and community disputes, as well as for family mediation clients. She has also provided conflict resolution and coaching services for individuals, not-for-profit organizations, faith communities, and governing boards.
Living and working in the Peace Country of northwestern Alberta during the natural gas development boom of the mid 1990s put Dymphny in an ideal position to hone her conflict management skills.
Public consultation and community engagement during extremely controversial times resulted in interest-based mediation practices becoming embedded in the stakeholder engagement process and led to the development of innovative tactics such as Ambassador Training and Ombudsman programs for clients.
