Department of Justice Canada Survey on the Practice of Family Law

To All Family Law Practitioners and Judges:

We have been asked by the Department of Justice Canada to circulate the following:

The Department of Justice Canada is conducting a survey to obtain current information on the characteristics of cases handled by family law practitioners in Canada, and to obtain information from both lawyers and judges concerning family law issues. Earlier versions of this survey were administered at past National Family Law Programs. These surveys help identify trends in family law over time and address emerging issues. We appreciate your assistance in completing this survey.

You may complete this survey in English or in French. The links below will send you to the English versions, but you may switch to French by selecting the option in the top right corner of the screen.

The survey can be saved and continued later. If you choose to complete the survey in more than one session, simply select the option to save, and you will be prompted to provide your email. You will receive a link to your own survey to complete later.

If you have any family justice colleagues who might be interested in completing this survey, please share it with them. However, we ask that each respondent complete this survey only once.

Thank you for completing the survey.



If you have any questions, please contact Claire Farid, Senior Counsel and Manager, Family and Children’s Law and Policy Unit, Family, Children and Youth Section, Department of Justice, Government of Canada at:, T:613.957-2788
