Ontario Family Law Act

Section 54 - Separation Agreements
Two persons of the opposite sex or the same sex who cohabited and are living separate and apart may enter into an agreement in which they agree on their respective rights and obligations, including:

(a) ownership in or division of property;

(b) support obligations;

(c) the right to direct the education and moral training of their children;

(d) the right to custody of and access to their children; and

(e) any other matter in the settlement of their affairs.

[A separation agreement is normally what you are working towards when you separate. The separation agreement in Ontario sets out all of your rights and obligations that arise out of your separation.]
