The Ontario Chapter of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, named “AFCC Ontario”, was founded in May 2008 at AFCC’s 45th Annual Conference in Vancouver, B.C. The Ontario Chapter is the first Canadian Chapter of AFCC and we hope to support other provinces to establish their own provincial chapters in the near future.
The Ontario Chapter is committed to diversity within our chapter; we are comprised of a vibrant group of professionals representing the various disciplines in family court matters such as judges, lawyers, mental health workers, mediators, custody evaluators, parenting coordinators and academics. We also strive for representation of members from the various geographical areas in our vast province.
We provide opportunities for our members to network and share their interdisciplinary views of family court matters on a local level and within a Canadian context. We endeavour to facilitate the creation and maintenance of these networks by creating opportunities for roundtable discussions, conferences, newsletters and additional opportunities to get together with other members.
