If you haven’t done this survey yet, today is the last day!
The Ministry of Justice is considering making some form of Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) mandatory before parties can proceed with a family law application. ADR could include mediation, collaborative law, and separation/divorce coaching. Exceptions to the requirement may be needed. The Ministry has been consulting with stakeholders since August 2016 and continues to do so. The Ministry is hoping to obtain as much feedback as possible before determining whether to proceed with legislative amendments. Your participation is critical to the success of this project. Please consider completing a short survey which is available at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YJKBNGV
The survey will be open until February 13th. Individual survey results will be kept confidential; data will be used in aggregated form only. If you have any questions about the survey, or if you wish to review the consultation document and provide written comments, please contact Kim Newsham at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 306-787-5709.
