Wade was born the second of two children to JoLinda and Dwayne Wade Sr. in Chicago, Illinois, on January 17, 1982. A spelling mistake on his birth certificate listed his first name as "Dwyane", which his parents kept." JoLinda had two children when she married Wade's father, with him she had Dwyane and his older sister Tragil. The pair separated. Wade described his early childhood in the South Side of Chicago as trying; when his parents divorced, JoLinda was given custody of the two children. JoLinda struggled with drug addiction, she was in and out of prison. At eight years old, Tragil tricked her brother into thinking they were going to the movies, only to leave him to live with his father and stepmother. Wade visited his mother on occasion until his father moved the family to Robbins, after which Wade would not see her for two years. Wade turned to football, avoiding the temptations of drugs and gangs. Wade credited Tragil as the person most responsible for pointing him in the right direction.
Wade modeled his game after him. On October 14, 2001, as Wade's basketball career blossomed, JoLinda vowed to turn her life around, she says that she has not used drugs since 2003. Wade played football for Harold L. Richards High School in Oak Lawn, he excelled as a wide receiver but success in basketball took longer. He grew four inches by the start of his junior year and emerged as the team leader, averaging 20.7 points and 7.6 rebounds. Wade's improvement continued into his senior year, when he averaged 11 rebounds, he led the Bulldogs to a Class AA Eisenhower Sectional appearance. Wade set school records for points steals made, he credited coach Jack Fitzgerald as a positive influence. Wade was recruited to play basketball only by Marquette, Illinois State, DePaul, due to academic issues. Wade committed to Marquette University in Wisconsin to play under coach Tom Crean. In his freshman year, Wade was sidelined by NCAA Proposition 48, which set academic eligibility requirements for participation in Division I sports.
Effort and tutoring sufficiently raised his academic standing so that he became eligible by the start of his sophomore year. Wade led the Marquette Golden Eagles in scoring with 17.8 points and led Conference USA in both steals per game with 2.47 and 2-point field goals made with 205. Marquette finished with a 26 -- their best since the 1993 -- 94 season. Wade again led the school in scoring with 21.5 points and the Golden Eagles finished with a 27–6 record. Three days after JoLinda was released from prison, she saw Wade play basketball for the first time in five years as Marquette upset the Cincinnati Bearcats, 70–61, to capture the Conference USA title on March 8, 2003, he helped bring the Golden Eagles to the Final Four for the first time since their 1977 national championship season. Wade was subsequently named to the All-America First Team by the Associated Press, making him the first basketball player from Marquette to receive the distinction since 1978.

Against a top-seeded Kentucky team, he delivered 29 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, including a memorable breakaway dunk, as Marquette upsetthe Wildcats, 83–69, advanced to the Final Four for the first time since 1977. Wade's triple double was the fourth recorded in NCAA tournament history; the Golden Eagles finished their season as No.6 in the AP Poll, Marquette's highest ranking since 1976–77. Wade was named the MVP of the Midwest Regional, his performance during earned him a high NBA draft projection. As a result, Wade skipped his senior year to enter the 2003 NBA draft. Marquette retired his jersey on February 3, 2007, it ordinarily requires student-athletes to have graduated for jersey retirement, but made an exception for Wade. Selected fifth in the 2003 NBA draft by the Miami Heat, Wade became the highest ranked of only four Marquette first round draft picks.

The ADR Institute of Canada, is a non-profit organization that offers alternative dispute resolution services to its members and the public across the country. It is one of the leading authorities on ADR in Canada, offering respected professional designations for both mediation and arbitration, with plans for a mediation and arbitration designation in the works. ADRIC has created an established set of ADR rules and codes, outlining the principles by which its affiliated ADR practitioners commit themselves to following. Beyond promoting ADR and networking and training individuals in ADR practices, ADRIC presides as the national body of the seven regional affiliate bodies of the ADR Institutes in Canada: ADR Institute of Alberta, first signed MOU in 1996 as Alberta Arbitration and Mediation Society. ADR Institute of British Columbia, first signed MOU in 1996 as British Columbia Arbitration and Mediation Institute. ADR Institute of Ontario, first signed MOU in 1996 as Arbitration and Mediation Institute of Ontario Inc.
ADR Institute of Saskatchewan, first signed MOU in 1996 as Arbitration and Mediation Institute of Saskatchewan Inc. ADR Atlantic Institute, first signed MOU in 1996 as Atlantic Provinces Arbitration and Mediation Institute. ADR Institute of Manitoba, signed MOU in 2013. Institut de médiation et d'arbitrage du Québec, first signed MOU in 2013. ADRIC's journey begins back in 1974; this organization was a non-profit, non-government group operating out of Toronto who's mandate was to offer the Canadian public alternative dispute resolution services. It was around the 1970s when AIC became involved in helping to establish a number of regional ADR groups across the provinces. In 1986 AIC was renamed, becoming the Arbitration and Mediation Institute of Canada, with the aim of making the organization more national in scope. Along with the name change, AMIC would consist of a regional representative from each affiliate group; these representatives would be elected locally, would collects fees from their respective groups members to fund both the national and provincial organizations.
In 1996 each region signed a Memorandum of Understanding with AMIC in order to make their relationship clear and establish a set of guiding principles to operate around. These MOUs were important, as AMIC was operating as a Federation and much of their work came through cooperative efforts between its regional affiliates. In 1994 the Canadian Foundation for Dispute Resolution was founded as a non-profit alliance for business corporations and law firms pursuing ADR practices in Canada. After moving its offices to Toronto in 1999, the foundation began to develop the concept of ADR Connect, providing the infrastructure and resources for people to search for ADR professionals in Canada: one of the ADR Institute's core functions today. On August 1, 2001, the Arbitration and Mediation Institute of Canada and the Canadian Foundation for Dispute Resolution consolidated, forming the ADR Institute of Canada. CFDR would continue to exist as a wholly owned subsidiary of the ADR Institute to ensure references to CFDR rules of arbitration within contracts will still be valid.
The MOUs signed in 1996 were transferred to ADRIC in 2013, since which have been resigned, most in 2019. There is some discussion surrounding the term ADR as to what it means; some contest that the'"A" could represent alternative, appropriate, or adaptive, dispute resolution. The debate goes deeper, addressing what dispute resolution methods should constitute ADR. In the UK for instance, ADR involves all practices that aren't arbitration; this is not the case in Canada however. In Canada, ADR is used as an umbrella term to encapsulate all dispute resolution practices outside of litigation, such as mediation, arbitration or restorative justice. Since the 1960s there has been an increasing interest in North America in pursuing an alternative path to dispute resolution outside of the traditional court system. America has led the way in this regard, establishing many ADR organizations and government programs since the half of the 20th century; however since the late 70s and early 80s, Canada too has seen a steady increase in ADR interest.
The reason for this rise is due to a number of factors, including a shift in government respect for ADR practices, an increased awareness of the impact the adversarial court system can have on those involved in litigation, financial costs and lengthy court proceedings. Just as there is a multitude of reasons for pursuing ADR, there is great diversity in the practice and philosophies of the different ADR methods. Many of these have evolved over time, some of which have led to the formation of nationwide ADR organizations; the indigenous peoples in Canada have their own traditional roots in dispute resolution that extend back for generations. These practices are as diverse as the individuals tribes themselves, each of which has their own specific take on settling disputes within their community. However, if one common thread were to be found, it would be the focus on community and restoration of communal ties during the settlement process; such practices have, in recent years, received attention from the Canadian Federal Government, which now has efforts in place to facilitate the capacity building of such ADR practices within indigenous communities.
ADR has been pursued when dealing with land disputes between indigenous communities and the Canadian Government. Alongside the Canadian Legal System, since the 1980s a number of initiatives have emerged
