When a bill successfully passes through the legislative process and receives Royal Assent it becomes an Act. Public General Acts are of a general public nature. Local and Private Acts concern matters relating to specific persons or matters.
Each Act is assigned a chapter number coupled with the name of the reigning sovereign and the regnal years(s) of the session, (eg. 40-41-42 Elizabeth II, c.44). In bound form, these Acts are commonly known as Statutes.
The most recent Public Acts and their enactment proclamations are available in the Canada Gazette, Part III.
