OIFN is offering this online listing as a resource for people and families and/or loved ones, in the hopes of increasing visibility and accessibility of Independent Facilitation for people who want it. As Independent Facilitation is a non-regulated practice, and there is no universally recognized local, regional, or federal body that holds the liability or provides monitoring for independent facilitators, OIFN does not oversee, evaluate, or certify the work of independent facilitators or Independent Facilitation Organizations.
OIFN does not recommend or endorse any practitioners or entities claiming to offer Independent Facilitation, including those who are listed here. Each facilitator listed is responsible for their own practice, and OIFN cannot be held responsible for their actions. Furthermore, OIFN is not involved in any selection processes or in the negotiation of agreements between facilitators and people and families.
These Facilitator Listings are provided “as is” without any guarantees. We ask those creating listings to be truthful and ethical, but OIFN does not evaluate their statements.
Thus, if you use these website resources (and we hope you will), you also accept responsibility to make your own decisions about the quality of the facilitators listed. We encourage you to review our Things to Consider page (https://www.oifn.ca/things-to-consider/) when deciding if a facilitator is aligned with the values and beliefs and seems like a good fit for you, your family, and/or your loved ones.
