The Best Parent is Both Parents

We believe that every child, whether in an intact family or a divided one, has a right to the love, parenting and nurturing of both parents, as well as their extended families.

ECMAS offers advice and support for families going through a divorce or separation.

Divorce is hard on everyone, but keeping children away from one parent or the other only makes things more difficult for all involved. We strongly believe that, in most cases, the best parent is both parents.

Membership drive underway! $25/year. Memberships can be renewed at any general meeting or support group meeting.

ECMAS has limited resources and needs your support! We are always looking for Volunteers and Donations!


Information is power!

You should learn all you can. Check out the valuable resources below.
Alberta's Maintenance Enforcement Program (MEP) can be a very difficult thing for some to deal with. Our guide, How to survive the Alberta Maintenance Enforcement Program offers some valuable information.

If you are having a tough time coping after a divorce or separation, or you know of someone who is, we recommend reading Depression and Suicide After Divorce.

ECMAS offers support group meetings and general information meetings. The Support Group meets every Tuesday from 7-9 p.m., upstairs in Room 211 at Bonnie Doon Mall. Everyone is welcome!
