How to apply for the
supervised access program
Referrals should be made through your lawyer. A copy of the court order or
signed separation agreement which specifies the conditions of access (times, dates, and frequency of the visits) must be faxed by your lawyer to our office. All referrals are accepted on a first come, first serve basis. If space is not available, you will be placed on a waiting list and contacted as soon as space
does become available.
If you do not have a lawyer, then a self-referral may be acceptable if both parties provide a court order.
Our program also needs the contact numbers for both parties in order to book intake interviews.
To discuss your suitability for a self-referral, contact our program at:
