About the Program
Family Matters: Assisting Families through Separation and Divorce helps families going through separation or divorce by providing access to:
- information and resources to deal with a changing family situation; and
- assistance to resolve urgent and outstanding issues.
The earlier separating families are able to address their issues, the more likely they will be able to reach resolution and minimize the negative impact, both emotionally and financially, on themselves and their children.
In spite of the availability of quality information and services, the current challenge for many is to identify what is available, access it, understand it, and use it to make quality choices.
Family Matters is a three-year pilot project and is currently available in Saskatoon, Regina, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw. A province-wide expansion will occur in April 2016.
