Ontario, Canada


The following excerpt is from Johnson v Taylor, 2015 ONSC 3750 (CanLII):

There are three conceptual bases for spousal support entitlement, which are compensatory, contractual and non-compensatory: Bracklow v. Bracklow (1999), 1999 CanLII 715 (SCC), 44 R.F.L.(4th) 1 (S.C.C.) at para. 49. Bracklow makes clear that all of the statutory factors, including the length of the relationship and the relative independence of the parties throughout the relationship, must be considered together: para. 61.
