Unif. Recog. & Enforc. of Canadian Domestic Violence Prot. Orders Act - Removed from this year's Legislative Agenda


11:02:21 AM  

Uniform Recognition and Enforcement of Canadian Domestic Violence Protection Orders Act. There was no public testimony on this agenda item. Commissioners expressed some concerns about the enforcement provisions in the act that give considerable control to law enforcement to enforce a protection order even if the protection order is not in hand. It also provides considerable immunity provisions regarding the enforcement of protection orders. The act was introduced last year and ran into opposition.

      Commission consensus was to remove this act from the 2022 legislative agenda
