Bill S-202: Shared Parenting Act

  • January 04, 2018

The Canadian Bar Association’s Family Law Section has submitted comments on Bill S-202, Shared Parenting Act

In the submission the CBA Section opposes putting the focus on parents’ rights rather than what is best for children. Currently, there are no ‘mother’s rights’ or ‘father’s rights’ in custody and access determinations, only the right of children to reside in the parenting arrangement that advances their best interests. The CBA Section believes the law should remain focused on this fundamental priority and therefore believe that Bill S-202 should not proceed in the legislative process.
