The government of British Columbia this week launched the final consultation stage in its attempt to modernize the province's family relations legislation:
"The Ministry of Attorney General began a review of the Family Relations Act in 2006. Its goals were to modernize the law, support co-operative approaches to resolving family law disputes and create a statute that is easy to understand. The review began with research into family law reform underway in other jurisdictions, as well as recommendations for reform made by family law experts. In 2007, 14 papers on family law topics were published to this site for public consultation. A sample of representative responses to the consultation documents were collected and made available to the public in 2009."
For the consultation process, the government has published a white paper
