Default Vacation Time

First time poster, long time lurker.

I have 50-50 shared custody of my 5 year old son, as dictated in a separation agreement. There's a disagreement looming over summer vacation, where the issue is taking our son out of the province for two weeks. Our current custody schedule is based on alternating 2 days during the week and alternating full weekends, which works fine given the age.

Obviously a 2 week holiday breaks up this schedule and my concerns are over the period of time my son will be away. Plus I have concerns that this may not be in his best interest due to other factors.

I assume the parent must ask for agreement to this ahead of time, but are there any issues with the fact that this is out of province? What if one of the parents does not agree? What are the legalities around this situation?
