I am sorry that I can't respond to you in French. Just in case that should help, I do write and speak German, fluently.
The mandatory course that divorcing couples must attend consists of two four-hour sessions. The course does nothing more than to familiarize divorcing couples with the consequences of a divorce, mainly with respect to government rules and regulations regarding legal activities, visitation rights, child custody awards, etc.
Not much more detail is accessible at a web page at the website of the Alberta Government.
Some people have claimed that a considerable number of parents decide not to go through with their divorce after they attend the counselling sessions. However, if that claim were true, it would be reflected in a decline in Alberta's divorce rate
after the sessions came into effect. The trend in Alberta's escalating divorce rate has not changed.
It is still increasing.

Australian Copy-Cat Proposal
Note: It is no surprise that the Australian copy-cat proposal came into
existence. Madame Justice Trussler, the promoter of the Alberta scheme,
frequently travels with her husband to Australia to visit relatives there.
While there, she very actively promotes the gospel of feminist jurisprudence.
