A provision of the Criminal Code, now rarely used against deadbeat alimentary support debtors, is the offence of "failing to provide the necessaries of life". At best, it was only a pressure tactic, as would be citation for contempt of court. Provincial governments now being involved in the collection of these payments, the tendency is to more aggressively seize assets and withhold tax refunds, etc.. Under federal legislation, it would even be possible for a persistent defaulter (i.e. misses 3 consecutive payments or owes more than $3000) to have a passport or any federal licence (e.g. pilot, boating) revoked or suspended, if the provincial collector made such a request.Originally posted by Lawless
