Welcome to the new COEMRP website!

Since we first launched COEMRP.ca in 2013, we have developed many resources to aid in the understanding and implementation of the Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act. As the volume of materials on the site has increased we found it necessary to reorganize the material. We hope that the new format will allow for quicker, more user friendly access to the information you are searching for. If you are looking for something specific that does not appear on our site, please contact us for assistance.

So What’s New?

We have reorganized our Resources under the following headings:

  • First Nation Law Making
    • These resources can aid First Nations who are opting to develop their own MRP law. You may also refer to the MRP Toolkit for step by step best practices to guide your law making activities
  • Resources for Individual Rights
    • These pages contain a number of resources that may assist in understanding the rights and protections available to individuals and families living on reserves where the provisional federal rules of the Act apply.
  • Dispute Resolution
    • You will find a Dispute Resolution Toolkit, which provides communities and individuals with basic information about dispute resolution options, major issues and important community, participants and governance questions to consider. These resources provide starting points for conversations on dispute resolution for matrimonial real property, or ways to renew or deepen conversations already in progress.
  • Resources for First Nation Leadership and Technicians
    • These resources provide information to First Nation Leadership, Band Managers, Land Managers and other technicians to aid in the implementation of:
      • Family Homes on Reserves and Matrimonial Interests or Rights Act
      • The steps to developing a First Nation MRP law
      • The provisional federal rules which apply on reserve until the First Nation enacts its own MRP law
      • Role of Chief and Council regarding applications under the provisional federal rules
      • On-reserve Rental Housing templates and resources created by the Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council.

Training:

If you are interested in attending an upcoming COEMRP training sessions, visit our TRAINING page and sign up for an MRP Toolkit Training session electronically through our new online registration.

Also located on our TRAINING page, is information announcing the opportunity for a community-based presentation. This means that COEMRP could come to your First Nation at absolutely no cost. We are available to make a presentation on:

  • The law-making provisions of the legislation and best practices for engaging your community in this activity
  • Information on the provisional federal rules and how they impact your First Nation. These rules came into effect December 16th, 2014 and will apply until your First Nation enacts its own MRP law

Presentations can be geared to leadership, technicians and/or members and residents.
