Laws of the Constitution


Laws of the Constitution: Consolidated gathers all of the historical and contemporary constitutional documents pertaining to Canada, its provinces, and its territories, organized thematically and topically for ease of reference and supported by comprehensive lists and a thorough index. The volume excludes overridden and irrelevant documents, making it a comprehensive yet focused and precise reference that presents the words, ideas, and documents that have brought the constitution into being. A must for academic libraries, Bur's compilation is an indispensable resource for lawyers and scholars in Canadian constitutional law, as well as historians, political scientists, policy makers, and anyone interested in constitution-making.

About the Author

Donald F. Bur has practiced law in three provinces and holds several degrees. Throughout his extensive career, he has focused on public law issues, and in particular issues of federalism. He is the author of Law of the Constitution: The Distribution of Powers and editor of Canadian Constitutional Law: Cases, Notes and Materials (3rd ed.).


"Dr Bur's new book is a treasure trove of Canadian constitutional law which is a most useful reference and also repays browsing by the curious. Dr Bur has done an admirable job...." Greg Taylor, Law Institute Journal, September 2021


"There is no single founding document of the Canadian Constitution, and many enactments refer back to pre-Confederation statutes and other instruments. Laws of the Constitution is a comprehensive, up-to-date, and invaluable compilation of these vital sources."—Ryan Alford, Associate Professor, Bora Laskin Faculty of Law, Lakehead University

"There is a unique story of Canada to be told in the bringing together of centuries of expressions of governance. Laws of the Constitution serves as an important resource for telling constitutional stories of Canada, and understanding the words, concepts, and enactments that brought and continue to fashion Canada into being."—Eric M. Adams, Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Alberta
