Overview

CIAJ’s 48th annual conference will discuss the justice system as it affects families in Canada. The conference will consider the wide ambit of concerns regarding the system’s ability to aid families in resolving their disputes. Are there enough resources available? Are the courts and tribunals the best forum for families and children? Are we ready for a culture shift or paradigm shift? There is no doubt that improving the situation for families in difficult and sometimes heartbreaking situations is paramount. All members of the legal community are invited to join forces to explore these issues and offer some solutions.
