COVID-19 Update

The health and safety of our members and others who present and attend our programs and events is a high priority for the Law Society of Manitoba. The situation with the COVID-19 virus is rapidly evolving. We want to assure all of you that The Law Society is regularly monitoring the advice of Canadian public health authorities and other experts regarding the Coronavirus risk, safe practices and recommendations.

All in person meetings and events scheduled to be held at the Law Society between now and April 30, 2020 are postponed with the exception of the April 23, 2020 Bencher meeting which will proceed via teleconference.

These postponements include the following CPD programs:

  • April 17, 2020 – The New Divorce Act Amendments
  • May 1, 2020 – Share Purchase Agreements: “Issues” for Purchaser and Vendor
  • May 6, 11 & 12, 2020 – NEW Land Titles Online: Integrating Plan and Title Searches
  • Le jeudi 14 mai – Les grands dossiers d’actualité dans le domaine desdroits linguistiques au Manitoba

All individuals directly impacted by a postponement will be contacted. Going forward we are working on enhancing our capacity for remote attendance at both meetings and continuing professional development programs.

Stay tuned as these will be announced on a program by program basis.

Please note that there will be significant delays for anyone ordering DVDs between Wednesday, March 18 through to Monday, May 4, 2020.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and immediately notify our members and those who attend our programs and our facility if the situation changes. The safety and wellbeing of our members, program attendees and volunteers continues to be a priority for us. Please refer to the following link for details on the current Health Canada guidelines or the CDC guidelines.

We will update this statement as new information develops.

We hope everyone remains healthy and well during this time.  We look forward to connecting with you at our upcoming programs.
