Matrimonial Property Rights and Interests

This publication explains the new matrimonial real property law introduced in 2014 in First Nation communities called Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act.

This easy-to-follow brochure explains the new legislation, including the Provisional Federal Rules, and how these laws may be implemented in First Nation communities. Some easy-to-follow flow charts are included to show changes that occurred in the matrimonial real property laws and how that affects individuals and families on First Nations in Alberta.

This publication also helps families understand what might happen in family matters on reserve such as a marriage or relationship breakdown, including one that is due to domestic violence, and if a spouse dies.

Finally, it provides contact information for further support, including The Centre of Excellence for Matrimonial Real Property.
