Consultation on The Homesteads Act, 1989

Posted on

By Melanie Hodges Neufeld

The Law Reform Commission of Saskatchewan recently released Reform of The Homesteads Act, 1989: Consultation Paper and are seeking feedback.  The Commission asks that the following questions guide responses:

  1. Should an attorney acting under a power of attorney be able to consent in the place of the non-owning spouse to a disposition of the homestead? Why?
  2. If an attorney acting under a power of attorney is able to consent to a disposition of the homestead, should there be any additional conditions or restrictions placed on this exercise of power?
  3. Should mines and minerals be included in the homestead, such that the non-owning spouse must consent to their disposition?

Responses may be sent no later than October 31, 2016.

Please see the Law Reform Commission website for more information, documents and survey.
