Workshops

Test your knowledge of the Child Support Guidelines with our Pop Quiz!

In-person workshops are offered semi-annually in the spring and fall, based on interest expressed.  A big THANK YOU to all past participants for making these on-going workshops a huge success! 

** These sessions qualify for CPD hours in Saskatchewan and
may qualify for CPD hours in Manitoba, New Brunswick and other provinces **
 

Due to the pandemic, our in-person sessions are currently post-poned.  
Our live online sessions are now open for registration. These live online sessions will be scheduled on a more frequent basis.
Much of the information provided in these sessions is not software specific. Participants, who may be using other calculation methods or software other than
ChildView®, have still obtained a lot of valuable insight into the child and spousal support calculations and possible resulting tax and financial issues.

Please keep an eye on the "Current Sessions" page for the current and upcoming dates, as well as registration information.

Email cvinfo@childview.ca if you would like to be placed on our advanced notice list for future sessions.
