What’s the difference between Custody and Access?

What’s the difference between Custody and Access?

You often hear people talking about seeking or getting custody of the children.  This makes it sound as though custody is a win or lose game: one parent gets custody and the other doesn’t.  The parent with it is the ‘real’ parent and the other parent is just a visitor or a babysitter.  This does not accurately reflect family law in Ontario.
