MESA offers a program, called the Parent-Child Access Centre to support non-custodial parents in obtaining regular access to their children. This program is open to anyone who is having difficulty seeing their children regularly after a separation or divorce.
The goals of this program are:
- To allow non-custodial parents to parent their children after a divorce or separation.
- To reduce conflict during exchange of children for an access visit.
- To assist both parents to attempt to resolve the issues leading to supervised access.
- Supervision of exchange of children
- Supervision of access
- Reports by neutral third party on the progress of the access
The parent Child Access Centre is a community program dedicated to maintaining and supporting parental involvement in their children’s lives after separation or divorce.
Canada’s Divorce Act and Provincial Acts relating to separation and divorce advocates that children should have as much contact with each spouse/parent and a grandparent as is consistent with the best interests of the child.
The Parent Child Access Centre is dedicated to enabling that contact and ensuring it is safe and as pleasant as possible for all involved.
Our initial program is aimed at facilitating a low-cost, pleasant and conflict free exchange and access/visitation supervision of the children, so that parent-child relationships can be maintained while protecting the best interests of the child where there are safety concerns, or interference with access.
In order to use this service, you must first contact MESA at firstname.lastname@example.org

Please provide your contact information and a brief description of your situation.
