Associate Emma Katz Quoted by CBC Regarding Rights of Common-Law Couples
Jul 21, 2022
Emma discussed the challenges with the differences in property rights between married spouses and cohabitating couples.

So I think it is time to have a discussion about how and when [common-law] couples should be sharing their wealth.”
