Religious Institutions


DUNTON RAINVILLE advises numerous religious institutions regarding various legal issues related to municipal and administrative law, as well as in other areas of law, notably in matters related to non-profit organizations, corporate constitution and civil liability.

The firm’s team has participated in significant real estate transactions and transactions related to other assets. During such transactions, DUNTON RAINVILLE’s lawyers counsel religious institutions throughout the negotiations, providing advice and protecting the institution’s rights and interests.

DUNTON RAINVILLE also counsels many religious institutions regarding the application of property tax rules. The firm’s lawyers represent the institutions before municipal authorities and the Tribunal administratif du Québec to establish religious institution status in order to exempt the institution from paying property taxes, where applicable.
