New Rights, New Obligations: An Introduction to The Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act

This self-paced e-Course is available on demand and is designed to provide you with substantive information about the Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act (FHRMIRA), as well as practical information you will need to know when making applications under FHMRIRA.

Did you know that under FHRMIRA each First Nation (other than those excluded) may be able to enact its own laws to address matrimonial property interests or rights on reserve land, but that unless and until they do so, provisional rules under FHRMIRA apply?

Under the provisional rules spouses and common law partners may have rights to property on reserves in cases of relationship breakdown or death.

Topics covered include:

  • Understanding the Background
  • Understanding the Foundation of FHRMIRA
  • Manitoba’s Approach to the Protection Order and Exclusive Occupation Order Provisions
  • Matrimonial Property Interests or Rights
  • Estates
  • Penalties and Enforcement

This program may be reported for a maximum of 1.5 hours of CPD activity for Manitoba Members.
