Substantial changes to the Divorce Act come into force on March 1, 2021. Experts from the Family and Children’s Law Team, Department of Justice Canada, are offering free virtual training to provide you with an overview of the amendments.

This course will be helpful to those who need an introduction to the amendments and to those who need a refresher on the eve of implementation.

It is likely to be of interest to lawyers, courts and dispute resolution practitioners, as well as other family justice professionals.

The course will cover the following:

• Status of Act, objectives

• Language of parenting, parenting orders

• Best interests, family violence

• Relocation: process, substantive law

• New duties: courts, parents, lawyers

• Jurisdiction for parenting orders

• Official Languages amendments

• Inter-jurisdictional support

• FOAEA Act changes

• Regulations, consequential changes, etc.

The Règlement no longer requires training activities to be recognized. It is now your responsibility to determine whether an activity meets your training needs and complies with the Règlement. In addition, it is no longer possible to request that the Barreau du Québec confirm the eligibility of activities offered by the Department that are available in the training calendar. As of April 1, 2019, the Department of Justice’s Centre for Legal Education Services no longer issues participation certificates for all activities.
