  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Secession; Canada; Quebec; Referendum; Clarity Act.

This chapter examines legal questions related to the secession of Quebec from Canada. The paper first briefly examines Canada's basic political structure and the events which led to the 1995 referendum on independence. It then analyses the aftermath of that cornerstone vote. Specifically, this paper critically examines the "Quebec Secession Reference" before the Supreme Court of Canada and the "Clarity Act" passed by the federal parliament. We will also refer to Quebec's own response to that legislation.
