The Department of Justice Canada (DOJ) continues to develop online training courses, professional training materials, and public legal education and information resources about the recent amendments to federal family law legislation and the Divorce Act.

You can also find the list in the Lawyer Portal under the Resources tab. Click on Resources for Lawyers and scroll down to LABC Resources by Area of Law. Click on Area of Law: Family to find the PDF called Department of Justice Canada — Family Law Resources (June 2021).
