LawFact of the Day: Family Law

Here is your daily LawFact from Wise Law for Thursday August 9, 2018.

Today we are talking about Family Law.
The first same-sex marriage in Ontario occurred on January 14, 2001. Its legality, along with the legality of many other same-sex marriages,  was affirmed by the Ontario Court of Appeal on June 10, 2003 in a case called Halpern v. Canada.

Same-sex marriage and divorce have been recognized throughout Canada since July 20, 2005, when the Government of Canada passed the Civil Marriage Act, which newly defined marriage in a gender-neutral manner.
