FamiliesChange.ca is a national website to help children, teens and parents deal with separation and divorce. The website launched on October 21, 2016, and provides portals to each participating province and territory with age-appropriate information to help anyone in the family deal with parental separation. All of the resources are available in English and French.
This project was led by the Justice Education Society of British Columbia, with financial assistance from Justice Canada.
The Nova Scotia portal provides access to 3 ‘Guides to Separation and Divorce’ for children, teens, and parents. These guides were developed by the Justice Education Society of BC, and were edited to each province’s and territory’s specifications. The NS portal can be found at Nova Scotia Portal
All guides are available in English and French. This project has also seen the children’s interactive website Changeville.ca made available nationally, also in both English and French.
These resources provide increased access to family justice for Nova Scotians by providing plain language, age-appropriate information about separation and divorce to families.
