29th Annual Institute of Family Law

Taking place at the stunning Fairmont Château Montebello, this high-end conference will provide comprehensive and insightful examination of current trends in family law, including an in-depth analysis of what you need to know about the amendments to the Divorce Act in Bill C-78 - that come into effect June 2020! 

The Institute includes an unparalleled level of judicial participation and is led by some of the most influential practitioners and academics in Canada.  Once again, the conference features enhanced participatory workshops and mentoring opportunities of enormous value for all members of the bar, tailored to all levels of experience.

So much more than a CPD exercise, the Institute remains THE collegial opportunity and social event for the Family Law Bar.  Connect with fellow members of the Bar throughout the day, during our 3-course dinner and at the Hospitality Suites. 

An event not to be missed, this conference is sure to educate, enlighten and engage!


2019 conference feedback:

"As a soon to be new call, this conference was an amazing experience to meet members of the bar and to network. I got the feeling throughout the conference that the Family Bar has a high level of collegiality. It also appeared to me that there is a good relation between the Bar and the judiciary."

"I look forward to attending this conference every year. It never disappoints."

"The single best thing that happens all year, every year."

"It was very nice to see former colleagues and meet new faces. As a newer call, I was pleasantly surprised by how many people I knew, and very much appreciated the opportunity to meet so many new people."
