Parental Support Program

Effective October 1, 2008 the Equity Ombudsperson will provide coaching sessions to lawyers and their spouses or life partners to help them plan for maternity and parental leave and meet the challenges of becoming new parents. Six in-person sessions will be offered, focusing on issues such as how to discuss leave options and transition issues with the lawyer's firm, deal with the new dynamics of having a family, and successfully re-integrate into practice while juggling career and home life. Sessions are free, completely confidential and supported by the additional resources of Blue Cross Manitoba.
