Legislation

Date adopted:

In Yukon, when we refer to (or “cite”) legislation in legal documents, we cite statutes as statutes of Yukon (SY) with the year, followed by the chapter number. For example, SY 2016, c.8. Statutes from the 2002 revision follow the same formula but with RSY 2002. Citations in acts do not include act names. When we cite a regulation, we use its Order-in-Council number.

Legislation references should use the formal government name.

Not: Yukon governement Carbon Price Rebate act
