List of provincial/territorial legislation providing civil remedies in response to intimate partner violence
 The Residential Tenancies Amendment Act (section 92.3) expanded the grounds for early termination of tenancy to include domestic violence and stalking.
 The Family Law Act, S.B.C. 2011, c. 25 received Royal Assent on November 24, 2011. It is expected that a minimum period of 12-18 months will be required to fully implement the new legislation, at which point the Family Relations Act will be repealed. The analysis included in these charts captures the remedies provided for in the Family Law Act, even if the applicable provisions of the Family Law Act have not yet been brought into force. Readers may wish to consult the Office of the Attorney General of British Columbia for information about the implementation schedule.
 This analysis is limited to legislation dealing specifically with intimate partner violence. Remedies may be available under other statutes, including the Criminal Code, R.S.C. 1985, c. C-46 as well as other provincial/territorial legislation. For example, in Ontario, the court has authority to grant a restraining order pursuant to theChildren's Law Reform Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. C.12 and Family Law Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. F.3.
