Parental Support

The Equity Officer is available to provide confidential coaching and assistance for lawyers and their spouses or life partners in planning for maternity and/or parental leave and meeting the challenges of becoming new parents. Common concerns include: 
  • How do I discuss leave options and transition issues with my firm?
  • How will I re-integrate into practice after being away for so long?
  • Will I be able to juggle the demands of parenthood with the demands of my busy practice?
  • I would like to return to work part-time but I don’t know if my firm will support me.


Additional support is available through Blue Cross Manitoba.
