WEBINAR: Citizenship – What you need to know

Citizenship – What you need to know  (56 minutes)

Recorded on September 24, 2014 – This CLEO webinar addresses the new changes to Canadian citizenship law. Bill C-24, the Strengthening Canadian Citizenship Act, which was passed in June 2014, contains a variety of changes which will dramatically reshape citizenship in Canada. Some of the provisions already came into effect on August 1, 2014, while other provisions will come into force later (likely by June 2015).

The presentation explains these changes, the steps to follow, and what to include to apply for citizenship. The presenters also explain what to expect after the application is submitted and advise on potential pitfalls, including misrepresentation, cessation, and vacation.

To access the webinar, go to the CLEO Your Legal Rights website.

Family Law Workshops – Lac La Biche & St. Paul

Bearpaw Legal Education & Resource Centre Family Law Workshops

April 22, 2014 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Portage College, St Paul – Common Area
April 23, 2014 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Portage College, Lac La Biche – Room 143

The A-B-Cs of the Child, Youth & Family Enhancement Act – 9:30 am to 11:30 am
This workshop helps participants navigate their way through Children’s Services and explores the legal rights, programs, and resources available to families. The target audience is frontline family support workers and families who are involved with or risk becoming involved with Children’s Services.

Family Group Conferencing – 12:15 – 2:00 pm
Family Group Conferencing (FGC) is a workshop mainly for service providers or members of the public interested in traditional and collaborative approaches regarding child apprehension. The FGCs are circle processes for families, courtworkers and other community support groups as well as Alberta Children and Youth Services. The FGCs can happen after a child is apprehended and before they are placed in a foster or kinship care situation. The idea is that all parties involved, including the child, have a say in the plan for that child. It is based on a traditional approach to healing. Family Group Conferencing explains how the process works, how it can help families and what NCSA can do to help organize a conference.

Parenting – Legal Rights and Responsibilities – 2:15 pm to 3:30 pm
This workshop highlights the legal rights and responsibilities that come with having children. The target audience for this workshop is young parents or parents-to-be, or those that work with this particular demographic.

Workshops delivered by Nadine Callihoo, Bearpaw Legal Education & Resource Centre.
