Relationships, rights and responsibilities – A webinar from Luke’s Place

Recorded on October 27, 2020

There are significant differences in legal rights and responsibilities depending on whether people are married or living common-law. This webinar explores different kinds of intimate relationships, what the law requires and how people can craft their own agreements about how they wish to treat one another, with a particular focus on what this can mean for someone in an abusive relationship.
