Mandatory Information Program (MIP)

Two-hour mandatory information program sessions are currently being held twice a week over Zoom. These information sessions assist individuals who are going through a separation or divorce to help understand and cope with the many issues they will face in the process.


A lawyer will be on hand to discuss legal issues and the court process, and Mediators will discuss various methods of resolving issues. Sessions also help to increase parents’ understanding of the effect that ongoing conflict between separating parents can have on their children, and to encourage parents to consider their children’s needs throughout the process of resolving their disagreements.


Attendance at a MIP is mandatory for parties involved in a court process but optional for the general public. There is no cost to attend a session, but pre-registration is required. To check on dates and times, or to register, call the Family Law Information Centre in your community.
