Gay marriage in
The Canadian Parliament began discussions on legalizing gay marriage in 1999, when the Canadian Alliance brought a motion to define marriage as a heterosexual institution. A draft bill was presented to Parliament in 2003, and after amendments bill C-38, the Civil Marriage Act, was passed in early 2005.
In 2004, the Ontario Court of Appeal found that the Divorce Act was discriminatory and ordered that it be altered to allow gay couples to divorce.
