The Centre of Excellence has developed two toolkits to assist First Nation leadership, technicians, members and residents to understand the provisions of the Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act.
The MRP Toolkit is an integrated set of printed materials, worksheets, flowcharts, checklists and training modules for use by First Nations and their professional associates to aid in understanding the legislation and guide law making activities.
The MRP Toolkit tab contains:
- Training PowerPoints for each chapter of the toolkit
- Provincial family law presentations to aid in understanding the interrelationship between the Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act and provincial rules relating to family breakdown
The Toolkit for On-Reserve Matrimonial Real Property Dispute Resolution provides communities and individuals basic information about dispute resolution options, major issues and community, participant and governance questions to consider when developing MRP laws. It provides starting points for conversations on dispute resolution for MRP or way to renew or deepen conversations already in progress.
