THE ADVOCATE 399
VOL. 78 PART 3 MAY 2020
These difficulties tend to pose the kinds of issues that are not easily and
quickly settled in litigation. For this reason, British Columbia has had comprehensive
pension-division legislation since 1995. BCLI’s predecessor, the
Law Reform Commission of British Columbia, was instrumental in the
development of that legislation. BCLI published a report in 2006 that was
the basis of the latest version of the legislation, which is Part 6 of the Family
Law Act. This consultation paper is intended to guide the next step in the
evolution of British Columbia’s legal framework for pension division.
The Project Committee intends to publish the consultation paper in summer
2020. Please check <www.bcli.org>, where copies of the consultation
paper will be made available for download.
