Our Constitution: Relevant Acts
Our constitution is comprised of several written statutes (typically passed by the imperial parliament in Great Britain) as well as several unwritten customs, usages, et cetera. The most important written parts of our constitution, in respect of taxing and spending, are the Constitution Act, 1867 and the Constitution Act, 1982. The full text of each is available here (click on the desired Act), and is preceded by a short overview of the more relevant sections, and by an index. For those who would like to read other written parts of our constitution, William F. Maton has worked very hard to prepare a rather good site, equipped with brief histories of the various Acts which form the written portion of our constitution (check it out).
