Launch of the 2022 National Family Law Survey

  • May 30, 2022

The Department of Justice Canada would like to invite you to participate in the 2022 National Family Law Survey (NFL Survey), which will take approximately 15 to 20 minutes to complete. This year the focus is on child support. The NFL Survey launches today and will close on August 31, 2022.

Background Information about the NFL Survey:

Since 1998, the Department of Justice Canada has conducted biennial surveys of lawyers’ and judges’ experiences in family law in Canada, collecting data geared toward family law policy development. Historically the NFL Survey was administered only to participants at the National Family Law Program Conference. Starting in 2018, however, it has been distributed to Law Societies across Canada through the Federation of Law Societies of Canada (FLSC) to increase participation in the Survey. Since 2019, the NFL Survey has been distributed to family law legal advisers across the country through the FLSC and the Canadian Bar Association – Family Law Section.

The NFL Survey collects information on the characteristics of practitioners’ family law cases, and their experience in family law issues. This information assists in the development of policy and programs related to family law in Canada.
