Pension division committee considers responses to public consultation at October 2020 meeting
November 9, 2020
BY Kevin Zakreski
Last month, the Pension Division Review Project Committee met after a hiatus in which it held a public consultation on tentative recommendations for reform of part 6 of the Family Law Act. The focus of this meeting was a consideration of the responses that the committee received in that public consultation.
The committee received 12 responses to its consultation paper. These responses were noteworthy for their thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and high level of engagement with the issues for reform. As it carefully reviews the responses, the committee is considering what changes should be made to its tentative recommendations in light of them.
The committee plans to hold one more meeting in 2020, to finish its consideration of consultation responses and to take up the first draft of its final report.
