2023 Child Protection Program
Jointly presented by The Law Society of Manitoba
The Court of King’s Bench Judges and
The Provincial Court Judges
January 1, 2023 marked three years since the federal Act respecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis children, youth and families came into force, bringing about significant changes to how courts and agencies deal with child protection cases involving Indigenous children. It is timely to devote this year’s program to meaningful discussion about the everyday impact the Act has had on child protection law practice, and to the questions that remain about many aspects of the Act’s application.
Kimberly Stonechild will be here to share her perspective as a Saskatchewan practitioner, in particular the steps being taken in that province with regard to cultural continuity and the development of cultural plans for families. Stay tuned for further updates regarding more program topics and speakers.
There are limited spots available in the Law Society classroom so be sure to register early if you wish to attend in-person.
Registration includes 30 day access to the video recording of the program.
