My Mediation career began in 2000 following 25 years of labour relations experience. I currently hold my QMed designation with the ADR Institute, specializing in workplace issues.
I have been on the Ontario Mandatory Mediation Program roster for Toronto and Ottawa since 2003 handling the typical range of civil suits including automobile accident claims, negligence, breach of contract, wrongful dismissal etc.

Since joining the Mediation Centre of SouthEastern Ontario (MCSO) I coach and evaluate workshop participants in effective mediation methods and have instructed on such topics as comparative mediation methods and developing a mediation practice. I am a roster mediator with the MCSO.

As principal of Neil Donnelly & Associates I maintain a private practice of mediation and third part neutral services focusing on workplace issues. I am involved in restorative justice forums, fact-finding, assessment, investigations, facilitation, team building as well as labour relations consulting.

Community Service –ADR

For 10 years, ending with a relocation to Kingston in 2012, I served as a volunteer with the Simcoe County Youth Justice Committee using restorative justice forums to address alternative first time non violent youth offenders.

Between 2000 and 2008 I provided volunteer mediation services in Small Claims Settlement Conferences in Barrie and Orillia. From 2002 to 2012 I served as President elect of the Simcoe County Dispute Resolution Association
