Surrogate Reform Training June 17, 2022

The Surrogate Rules, Alta Reg 130/1995, were recently amended to replace the existing NC forms with new GA forms and to permit electronic applications using a Surrogate Digital Service. Those amendments come into force on June 15, 2022 (see Order in Council 356/2021). Effective June 15, 2022, most surrogate applications must use the new GA forms and NC forms will no longer be accepted. LESA is pleased to host a half-day training session on the changes.

Surrogate Reform will be broadcasted live as a webinar on June 17, 2022. Justice C.M. Jones, Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta is serving as the chair for this program and will be joined by the following presenters:

Associate Chief Justice John D. Rooke, Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta 

Justice John S. Little, Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta 

Robert J. Anderson, Alberta Department of Justice 

Johanna Dietrich, Alberta Department of Justice  

David J. Koski, The Estate House by Gorman & Koski LLP 

Lois J. MacLean QC, Rand & Company LLP 

Topics will include:

• The role of the clerks
