Legislation is laws made by, or with the authority of, the Parliament. Parliament delegates aspects of its law-making function to other entities.

Bills are proposed laws introduced into the Legislative Assembly. If agreed to by the Parliament, a Bill becomes an Act.


Laws made under law-making power delegated by the Parliament are called subordinate legislation. The most widely used and known is the regulation.

OQPC prepares in force versions of legislation, known as reprints, that consolidate all changes to the legislation as at a particular date.
