There is a provision in the Criminal Code relating to the provision by the husband which is in force in all the Provinces.

Section 210 and 215 makes the husband criminally responsible for omitting, without lawful excuse, to provide necessaries for his wife, if the death of the latter is caused, or if her life is endangered or health is or likely to be permanently injured by such omission.

Chap 29, C.O. 1905.

The Supreme Court of the North-West Territories shall have jurisdiction to grant alimony to any wife who would be entitled to alimony by the law of England to divorce and to alimony as incident thereto, or to any wife whose husband lives separate from her without sufficient cause and under circumstances which would entitle her by the law of England to the restitution of conjugal rights, and alimony when granted shall continue until the further order of the court.
