Regulations Listed by Department

This page lists Acts in alphabetical order beneath the name of the department or agency responsible for administering them - linked to a list of active regulations made 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) within 24 hours of 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 note:  we distribute Nova Scotia regulations only, not the Acts.  Go to the Legislative Counsel website for the text of Acts (statutes) and bills.

Click a letter for Departments/Agencies beginning with that letter,
then click on the name of the Act to link to the regulations list
