FATHERS ARE CAPABLE TOO - FACT
We recommend that two committees be established immediately:
1] An inter-ministerial committee
2] An advisory committee
These committees would:
A] Establish the framework for funding gender equity programs
B] Examine funding programs and/or pilot projects from other provinces and countries
C] Monitor and assess its development and effectiveness
D] Develop a consultation process with the offices of
The Attorney General
The Solicitor General
The Ministry of Community and Social Services
This inter-ministerial committee and advisory committee would be represented by; custodial parents, non-custodial parents, service providers, psychologist's, family law judges, family law lawyers and The Children's Lawyer.
The issue of custody and access crosses the borders of three different Ministries - The Attorney General, The Solicitor General, and Community and Social Services.
It is curtail therefore that proper lines of commination be developed in a format that allows ongoing discussion. Creating an inter-ministerial committee will help serve this purpose.
Where it is an offense to disobey a court order, a police officer under section 36  of the Children's Law Reform Act may locate, apprehend and deliver a child named in the court order.
Police who apprehend a child under 36  of the Children's Law Reform Act may not be sued for wrongful seizure. The police shall enforce "reasonable access" by a non-custodial parent.
Where a custodial parent refuses access the police officer may issue an offence notice.
