«Several provinces and territories have Family Laws Acts, but these are limited in scope as they tend to focus selectively on issues such as divorce and the division of assets. Quebec’s comprehensive family policy, however, has been cited as a model family policy […].» (p. 368) «Quebec civil code states that ex-partners do not have a right to sue for spousal support upon separation […], whereas in other provinces they do. There was recently a case before the Supreme Court of Canada that questioned the constitutionality of the Quebec law: the Supreme Court upheld the Quebec law […].» (p. 359) «Parents in Quebec were [also] more likely than other parents to take paid leave, particularly fathers. More than ¾ of newborns in Quebec had a father who took some leave, compared to about ¼ in the rest of Canada.» (p. 366)
