Johanne Cavé

ARBITRATOR & MEDIATOR

 

After 20 years of practicing labour and employment law, I am now offering my services as an arbitrator and mediator, in English and French, across Canada.

 

During the course of my career as counsel, I handled matters touching most aspects of labour and employment law and participated in several rounds of collective bargaining. I am available to mediate or arbitrate labour disputes, including grievance arbitration and interest arbitration.
