March 24, 2021 – 1:48 PM – FOLA’s Weekly Update, & Important Reminder, and information about a current MAG Consultation

Please find attached, a copy of this week’s Sector Call Update.  You can also access it here.

REMINDER: Have you completed our VERY short Law Library Use Survey yet?  It is critical that the LSO understands the importance and specific use of our libraries by our members so please take a moment to fill out our short survey.   Responses will help us in our efforts to convince all Benchers of the importance of law libraries throughout Ontario.  TAKE THE SURVEY

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Included in the Update is a bullet about MAG’s current Consultations on Remote Notarization (launched yesterday).  If you or someone from your Association would like to comment, please note that the deadline is March 26th!  You can learn more (including accessing MAG’s slide deck setting out the questions that will be discussed during the consultations) here.

FOLA will be preparing a submission.  If you or your Association would like to send comments for consideration in our Submission, please email me (katie.robinette@fola.ca) with responses to questions based in the Consultation deck (on our website but also attached here), please do so by NO LATER THAN THURSDAY AT NOON so that we have time to review and consider when preparing our Submission in time for MAG’s March 26th deadline.   Alternatively, you can prepare your own submission by March 26th.  

CASELINES TRAINING: Recordings of CaseLines training held in February are now available.  Links can be found in our Weekly Update.

Please share with your members.
