Most every parent has the right to spend time with his or her child. If parents don't share joint custody of their children after they divorce, the noncustodial parent typically has the right to see their kids or to have access to them as stipulated by family law in Canada. Access, as granted by the courts or spelled out in a parenting plan, also gives the parent the right to be informed about their children's lives.
