Annual statutes of Nova Scotia 1836 to 1997 now online

Printer-friendly version

The Nova Scotia Legislative Library has digitized the annual statutes of Nova Scotia, 1836 to 1997, making these publicly available via the Legislative Library catalogue.

The revised statutes – all but RSNS 1989 – have also been digitized and linked.

Note: These annual statute volumes are large PDF files that may take several minutes to load and open.

The digitization of Nova Scotia statutes is nearly complete; annual statutes from 1998 to the present and statutes at large (1758 to 1835) are provided on the Office of Legislative Counsel website.

Watch for the RSNS 1989 to be digitized and available by spring of 2017.
