The amendments to the Divorce Act in former Bill C-78 were scheduled to come into force on July 1, 2020. As a result of delays to implementation efforts at both the provincial/territorial and federal levels caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, a new coming into force date of March 1, 2021 has been approved by Treasury Board.
