Description

This thesis explores same-sex spousal benefits claims against the background of Canada’s equality rights jurisprudence. This, in turn, is examined in light of the right to respect for one's private life, as developed in European human rights jurisprudence, and contrasted with the right to privacy doctrine developed in the United States of America. The judicial development of limitations of constitutionally guaranteed rights and freedoms is also examined with a view to developing a successful same-sex spousal benefit claim.
