Laws of Other Provinces

Statutes are laws made by Parliament or a Legislature and are also known as Acts. They may create a new law or modify an existing one. Regulations are the rules that address the details and practical applications of the law. The authority to make regulations related to an Act is assigned within that Act. Just like statutes, regulations have the full force of law.

The resources listed here provide access to provincial and territorial statutes and regulations.
