Mediators in Nova Scotia are required to have a degree in Social work, Psychology or a related field. They are governed by the licensing body of the degree they hold. So, if they have a PhD, they are a psychologist and are governed by the Board of Psychologist Examiners. If they have a social work degree or family therapy degree, they are governed by their respective licensing body.
If you have a business card of theirs, it should have their degree initials behind their name. If you don't, you can always look them up in the database of licenses.
You are welcome. If she has a BA in Sociology-- then she is not a real mediator. Canada requires mediators to have psychology, social work, marriage and family or counseling degrees.
It doesn't matter where she received her education -- jsut what degree she has.
What degree does she have -- I can give you contact details to file.
Okay -- here's some information:

Granted, this is for Winnipeg, but I think the same body governs her-- as she lists herself as a certified mediator. Check this out and if you can't file through them, let me know and I will see what else I can find. Also, if you can't file through FMM, ask them who you can file through -- they should definitely know.
Is there anything else I can do to help?
They say they govern all of Canada
