What is the test for compensatory support in a long-term relationship?

Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Jarzabek-Odwazny v. Odwazny, 2021 ONSC 7695 (CanLII):

Compensatory support is meant to acknowledge the contributions of a spouse to the relationship and any financial opportunities which the spouse has forgone for the sake of the family or other spouse. Generally, compensatory awards are seen where one spouse has sacrificed career opportunities, has made significant contributions to the household, and where one spouse has made significant contributions to the other spouse’s career. It may also apply where one spouse has received the benefit as a result of roles assumed by the other spouse (Moge v. Moge 1992 CanLII 25 (SCC), [1992] 3 SCR 813).
