Eighteen years since the release of the first edition, Chief Legislative Counsel John Mark Keyes has produced an update of Canada's definitive textbook on legislative instruments made by governmental authorities - Executive Legislation.
This volume is the product of the author's 25 years of experience of legislative drafting, teaching and writing in this vital, but often overlooked area of law. The book begins with a threshold examination of what constitutes executive legislation (which embraces instruments most commonly referred to as "regulations" or "orders in council") in the context of the legal system that authorizes and delimits its effect as law.
It then considers how it is made and operates within this context and provides a comparative law perspective ranging not only throughout Canada, but also across Commonwealth jurisdictions (the UK, Australia and New Zealand).
