Appeal route from Partition Act orders clarified

The Ontario Court of Appeal has clarified the appeal route for orders made under the Partition Act. Section 7 of the Act provides for an appeal to the Divisional Court. An appeal may go to the Court of Appeal if it is combined with another appeal that lies to that court (see s. 6(2) of the Courts of Justice Act).  If an order made under the Partition Act is the only order under appeal, the Court of Appeal does not have jurisdiction.
