This chapter discusses the story of trust as patrimony in Quebec, with particular emphasis on the symbolic and normative power of patrimony. After a brief overview of the story of the trust in Quebec, the chapter examines why patrimony, specifically the patrimony by appropriation, was chosen to recast the trust in the new code. It then explores what it means to call a trust a patrimony and especially patrimony by appropriation. It also considers patrimony as property, as personality, and as legal universalities, and asks whether it is possible for property and obligations to be bereft of personality in the civil law. Finally, it looks at two different visions of purpose patrimonies and two different visions of the trust as understood in the civil law.
