On March 23, 2004, the Government announced a new policy on the mandatory publication of contracts over $10,000. At the time, certain types of contracts were excluded from the proactive disclosure requirements, chief among these being contracts for legal services. TBS has revised the Treasury Board Guidelines on the Proactive Disclosure of Contracts to remove the exemption for contracts for legal services. Under the current guidelines, the only contracts exempted from proactive disclosure obligations are those where disclosure of information would compromise criminal investigations, national security, negotiations or public safety.

This report examines the impact of the lack of access to legal aid in family law cases in Canada. The objective is to identify challenges that people face in accessing justice for family law disputes in the absence of legal aid, and to analyze the impacts of the lack of access to family legal aid on certain population groups (i.e., women, residents of rural and remote communities, people with disabilities, Indigenous peoples, newcomers, LGBTQ2S+ people, official language minorities and visible minority groups). The following research questions were asked:

What policies govern how legal aid is granted in family law cases? Are cases involving family violence treated differently, and if so, how?

Purpose of the toolkit

This toolkit was developed with input from family law and family violence experts from across Canada. It is designed to:
*Respond to research calling for a tool designed specifically for family law legal advisers to use in identifying and responding to family violence;
*Provide practical guidance to legal advisers to gather the information they need both for the family law case and to connect clients to other services to promote their safety;
*Assist legal advisers with varying levels of experience in dealing with cases involving family violence; and
*Be incorporated into a legal adviser’s existing practice and support them in using their own experience, expertise and professional judgment. Please note that while the toolkit contains relevant background information and practical guidance, it is not intended to replace more comprehensive education and training on family violence; these are important to increase your understanding of the complex dynamics of family violence and family law. The Department of Justice Canada offers a free accredited online course on Family Violence and Family Law for Legal Advisers: http://www.justice.gc.ca/eng/fl-df/cfl-mdf/trai-form/index.html.
