Event description


The Courthouse Libraries BC and Legal Services Society are hosting a 2 part webinar on Matrimonial Property on Reserve. For both sessions, we will be joined by a presenter from the Center of Excellence for Matrimonial Real Property, an organization dedicated to supporting the implementation of the Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act (the Act). In this first session, our presenter will provide an overview of the Act as well as ways in which some First Nations may set up their own legislative schemes for addressing family law matters and the division of matrimonial property on reserves.

The Act, which was recently implemented, fills a previous legislative void for certain family law matters on First Nation reserves. It sets out rules that apply to spouses and common-law partners respecting their family home and their real property on reserves during a conjugal relationship, on breakdown of the relationship, and on the death of a spouse or common-law partner.

Participants in this course may claim up to 1 hour of CPD credit.
