Description:Still under development. The complete set ofdocuments is available now, hereon-line, freely. With the main core done,there's the other 400 or so to do ... Please note that these documents are theEnglish versions. A committee was struck years ago to have them translated into an official French version for enactment, but to the best of my knowledge, it just handed in its report in 1993 and there has been nothing produced yet that is 'authorative.' For more details on this, refer to section 55of the Constitution Act,1982. If anyone has any information to the contrary, please send info along, thank you. If anyone has something to contribute to this archive, like historicallegal documents relating to the evolution of Canada, feel free to drop mea note.Statutes of CanadaAs related to the Constitution Acts, 1867 - 2001Don't get too excited, there's only a few Acts on-line, undersections C, I, Y and J. These are the Acts mentioned in thefootnotes to the Consolidation of the Constitution Acts, 1867 to 1982.Note that this section is complete insofar as referencesby the Consolidation of the Constitution Acts, 1867 to 1982, are concerned.In addition to the subject-specific versions, there's also an index to allthe Statutes of Canada online, despite the sorry state of organisation.As related to Canada in GeneralYou may try Canada's Department of Justice Web server for an almostcomplete selection of Acts in force today.
