Family Matters: Assisting Families through Separation and Divorce

Posted on

By Melanie Hodges Neufeld

Family Matters is a Government of Saskatchewan pilot program aimed at minimizing the impact of separation and divorce on all family members by providing:

  • information and resources to deal with a changing family situation; and
  • assistance to resolve urgent and outstanding issues.

As noted in an article by the CBC, “Family Matters, is looking to alleviate some of the shared stress that occurs in families experiencing a divorce or separation”. To access the program, the public can contact an Intake Worker to discuss their situation:

The Intake Worker gathers basic information from callers to access needs, provides relevant information and connects callers with other services. Please visit the Family Matters website for more information about the program, a list of common misconceptions about separation and divorce, and other resources.
