Conflicts are inherently more complex than they have ever been before. The Canadian Collaborative for Engagement & Conflict Management (CECM) was created in 2020 to provide practical and pragmatic conflict management training and skills building for those who are seeking a clearer path to professional development and accreditation.
Evolving from academia, CECM is an alliance with vast experience across a wide range of practices, including investigation/fact finding, professional facilitation, community and stakeholder engagement, mediation, med-arb, arbitration and neutral third-party services.
Our faculty is comprised of credentialed professionals and business owners, with a proven track record of success in conflict prevention, and conflict management. Today, CECM is a collaborative that continues to offer exceptional training and skills building.
At CECM, we are systems thinkers. We look at the whole picture, not part of it. When we think about conflict, we see the entire spectrum. Our approach recognizes that conflict prevention (through effective engagement and relationship building) is an essential part of effective conflict management.
