According to the Constitution of Canada, the definition of marriage is the exclusive responsibility of the Federal Government; this interpretation was upheld by a December 9, 2004 opinion of the Supreme Court of Canada (Re Same-Sex Marriage).

Until July 20, 2005, the Federal Government had not yet passed a law redefining marriage to conform to recent court decisions.

The Court agreed with the lower court that the traditional definition of marriage was discriminatory and that same-sex marriage was legally permitted. The court did not allow the province any grace time to bring its laws in line with the ruling, making Ontario the first jurisdiction in North America to recognize same-sex marriage.

In 20, court decisions in the superior courts of Ontario, Quebec and British Columbia held that the restriction of marriage to opposite-sex couples was discriminatory and contrary to the equality clause of the Canadian Charter of Rights of Freedoms. The Federal Liberal Government had appealed the trial decisions to the provincial courts of appeal, but following the decision on the Ontario Court of Appeal, Prime Minister Chrétien announced on June 17, 2003 that the Federal Government would not seek to appeal the decisions to the Supreme Court.Given the composition of the House of Commons at the time, such a measure would have been very unlikely to pass. As a result, rights varied somewhat from province to province. Brent Hawkes forced the issue by performing two same-sex marriages, taking advantage of the fact that Ontario law authorizes him to perform marriages without a previous license, via the issuance of banns of marriage.
