Mandatory Information Program

This program is mandatory for anyone starting or responding to a court action and is known as the MIP (Mandatory Information Program). But it is free and available to everyone. The session is presented, whenever possible, by a lawyer and a mental health professional. The presenters provide an overview of the process of separation and divorce including:

  • Effects of a relationship breakdown on adults
  • Effects of a relationship breakdown on children
  • Legal issues
  • Options for dispute resolution
  • Understanding the court process
  • Benefits of mediation and other collaborative processes

If you are required to attend because you are an Applicant or Respondent in a court case, your date will be assigned to you.


To register to attend or to reschedule your assigned date call 416-326-6214 to register to attend the MIP at 361 University Ave. For information about registering for the MIP at 47 Sheppard, click here.
