Help pass Bill C-560 to restore justice and equality in Canadian family courts

The Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE) and Canadian Equal Parenting Council (CEPC) are asking you to help get Bill C-560 passed in the Canadian parliament. The bill would amend the federal Divorce Act to include a rebbutable presumption of equal parenting.

Equal parenting (EP) is a collection of “best practices” in family law and procedures to ensure that both parents keep equal rights, responsibilities and time with their children, unless parents freely decide otherwise, or unless a parent has been proven unfit to an evidence-based standard. In effect, EP removes judicial discretion to award sole custody without due process and unless a clear standard has been met.
