Volumes of the Statutes of Canada at a law library

The Statutes of Canada (SC) compiles, by year, all the laws passed by the Parliament of Canada since Confederation in 1867. The Revised Statutes of Canada (RSC) consolidates current federal laws in force, incorporating amendments into acts, adding new substantive acts enacted since the last revision and deleting rescinded acts. Thus far there have been six revisions: in 1886, 1906, 1927, 1952, 1970, and 1985. The Statutes of Canada are its own legal code. They are the federal legal code of Canada that contains the federal laws and statutes enacted by the Parliament of Canada, and are enacted into their own unified code. The Statutes of Canada are organized by alphabetical order and are updated and amended by the Government of Canada from time to time.[1][2]
