Welcome to the Registry of Regulations

The Registry of Regulations is the central government office responsible for Nova Scotia's regulations. The Registry files, indexes, consolidates and publishes the Province's regulations. The Registry also reviews draft regulations to ensure they meet legislative drafting and plain legal language standards. The duties and powers of the office are set out in the Regulations Act.

What is on our site?
On this site you will find the full text of most of the regulations that we have on file. Some regulations are not available in electronic format. The regulations on this site are consolidations prepared by the Registry of Regulations and are unofficial (see disclaimer). Regulations can also be ordered from the Registry in hard copy or in electronic format, if available.

This site also contains the full text of the Royal Gazette Part I (2006 to present) and the Royal Gazette Part II, Regulations (2002 to present; tables of contents only, 1996-2001), and annual indexes to the Royal Gazette Part I (2000 to present) and Royal Gazette II, Regulations (1996 to present).

Please note: Effective August 25, 2014, the Registry of Regulations is moving to 1690 Hollis Street. Our mailing address and telephone numbers will remain the same.
(Please Note: Our Office registers and publishes Nova Scotia's regulations. We cannot interpret regulations or provide legal advice. For information on how regulations may apply to you, contact the administering government department or consult a lawyer.)
