Collaborative family law has grown in popularity over the last 25 years and has been embraced by family law practitioners to varying degrees. The collaborative family law movement began in the Western American states and was later adopted in British Columbia as one of the first provinces in Canada to embrace a shift in family law towards alternative forms of dispute resolution. Since that time, many lawyers across the country have embraced a transition to the collaborative process, perhaps in light of the fact that most family law cases settle before they reach the adjudication phase of litigation.
It’s the old adage we’ve all heard before. ‘I can’t get a job without experience and I can’t get any experience without a job.’ But what if that scenario was getting less true every day? What if experience – through experiential learning – was becoming the new norm? In recognition of this, the Workforce Development Board /Local Employment Planning Council (WDB/LEPC) has come together with their community partners to create the don’t-miss Experiential Learning Fair – Information Session & Trade Show in Peterborough on Friday Nov. 8.

It’s time for summer fun! But summertime comes with safety challenges and risk of personal injury. Part 2 of our Safety Series focuses on dog attacks and bites.
The beautiful summer weather has arrived and people are often outdoors with their dogs. And while we picture happy dogs with wagging tails, the reality is that more dogs out in the summer often leads to increased dog bites and attacks, or even being knocked down by an excited dog.
Dog bites and attacks may result in permanent physical and psychological harm, including scarring and risk of infection. Some dog attacks may even prove fatal. Here are some interesting statistics:
Submitted by Jean-Philippe Grenier, CUPW, third national vice president On June 17, 2019, the Canadian government declared a climate emergency, passing a motion through parliament calling climate change a “real and urgent crisis, driven by human activity.”
This should shock no one. We already know that our country is warming up twice as fast as the rest of the world and that it is becoming increasingly difficult for our planet to breathe.
Words are not enough. They are meaningless without action. The federal government must walk the talk, starting with its largest Crown Corporation, Canada Post.
The days are getting longer and spring is on the way. But springtime comes with safety challenges and risk of personal injury.
Springtime is a great time for getting out the motorcycle for a road trip. However, because of increased motorist, pedestrian and other traffic, there may be increased risks. Also, changing weather in spring (including freeze and thaw conditions) can cause slippery patches on the roadways, causing dangerous driving conditions.
