This video is based on the research report created by Larry Chartrand, B.Ed., LL.B., LL.M examining the interaction and application of the Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act (FHRMIRA) within the context of Quebec. Quebec’s family law is governed by the Quebec Civil Code.
This video identifies:
1) the differences that exist between FHRMIRA and the Civil Code and,
2) whether Quebec matrimonial law will prevail over the provisions of the FHRMIRA and,
3) whether the interim provisions of FHRMIRA and First Nations matrimonial laws created pursuant to the Act will be enforceable by Quebec courts.
