Current Uniform Acts

Uniform Acts

Uniform Acts are the usual 'product' of the Civil Section of the Conference. They are adopted and recommended for enactment by the jurisdictions (provinces and territories and sometimes the federal government as well).

On this site, clicking on the name of the Uniform Act will take you to a page showing the current version of the Act itself and the background papers that led up to it, a kind of legislative history, as well as information on where it has been enacted. For documents created since the Conference went online in 1994, the link will be to the actual document, in most cases. For documents created before 1994, the reference will be to the appropriate volume in the Proceedings of annual meetings.
