Africanadian Mediation and Community Services (AMCS) is a non-profit community based conflict resolution service in Toronto, Ontario.

AMCS was incorporated in August 2001 as a community
based non-profit and charitable organization to assist the African, Caribbean communities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) resolve disputes in English and major African

The mission of AMCS is to assist in resolving disputes and conflicts arising in personal relationships with neighbours,

The conflict resolution service also encompasses counseling services on parenting, anger management, building youth leadership for the at-risk youth, school drop outs and restoring communal harmony in case of racial discrimination, hate crimes and systemic barriers against members of African and Caribbean communities. AMCS also intervenes with African Canadian Parents whose children have been taken away by Children’s' Aid Society to reunite the family by correcting and changing inappropriate behaviour in the family through counseling and mentorship.
