Regulations Listed by Act

This page lists Acts in alphabetical order - linked to a list of active regulations under each Act. Only Acts that have regulations made under them are listed.

The Nova Scotia regulation number ("N.S. Reg.") of the regulations, or of the most recent amendment to the regulations, is listed beneath the regulation title.

We post notice of new regulations and amendments (including new N.S. Reg. numbers) as soon as possible after filing, but the text of the new or newly consolidated regulations is not available until after the new regulations or amendments are published in the Royal Gazette Part II.  Please contact us by e-mail with any questions about specific regulations.

Please note: we distribute Nova Scotia regulations only, not the Acts. Go to the Legislative Counsel website for the text of Acts (statutes) and bills.
