How A Bill Becomes Law in Canada. To create a new law, also called an act or a statute, the government first introduces a bill which must pass through various stages in both …the House of Commons and the Senate in order to become law.. What is a bill?. A bill is a proposed law that is introduced in either the House of Commons or the Senate. Most bills are introduced in the House of Commons. Bills can amend or repeal existing law or can contain completely new law.. There are two kinds of bills: public and private. Public bills relate to public policy and may be sponsored by a Minister (Government bill) or by a private Member (Members' bill). Private bills benefit a particular individual or group.. What stages must a bill pass in order to become law?. In the First House:. The first House can be either the House of Commons or the Senate and is always the House in which the bill was introduced. If the first House is the House of Commons then the second House is the Senate and vice versa. A bill must pass through all the following stages, regardless of the House in which it was introduced, in order to become law.. 1st Reading: This is a formality whereby the bill is introduced to the House. The bill is then printed in its 1st reading form, often with explanatory notes.. 2nd Reading: The main principle and purpose of the bill is debated. If passed, the bill is then referred to a committee for further study. In some instances, a bill may be referred to committee prior to receiving second reading. Bills are not re-printed at 2nd reading.. Committee: Committee members study the bill clause by clause. The committee may make amendments.. Report Stage: The committee presents its report, which may recommend that the bill be accepted in its 1st reading state, or with amendments, or that it not be proceeded with further. During report stage debate, members can propose further amendments to the bill.. 3rd Reading: The House reviews the bill in its final form and then orders the printing of the 3rd reading bill. The 3rd reading copy includes any amendments made to the bill thus far.. In the Second House:. Once a bill has passed the 3rd reading stage in the first House, the bill goes to the second House where it must pass through the same stages. The Senate may amend, delay or refuse to pass bills, although traditionally the Senate passes most bills. Any amendments made by the second House however, must be agreed to by the first House or the bill does not become law.. Royal Assent. Royal Assent completes the enactment process. Bills may be given Royal Assent in two ways: by the Governor General or her deputy in a formal ceremony that takes place in the Senate before an assembly of both houses, or by written declaration. "Where royal assent is signified by written declaration, the Act is deemed to be assented to on the day on which the two Houses of Parliament have been notified of the declaration" ( Royal Assent Act , S.C. 2002, c.15, s.5). When a bill receives Royal Assent it is given a chapter number for the Statutes of Canada .. When does an act come into force?. An act comes into force on the date of Royal Assent, unless the Act itself states that it comes into force on some other day. Different sections of an act can come into force on different days. An exact date may be specified or a "commencement" section may state that the Act, or certain sections of the Act, will come into force "by order of the Governor in Council". This means an order in council is required to fix the date that the Act or sections of the Act come into force. These orders in council are often referred to as proclamations. The House of Commons and Senate do not have to be sitting in order for an order in council to be issued to proclaim an act or sections of an act into force.. What happens if a bill is not passed?. Not all bills become law. A bill "dies on the order paper" if it does not pass through all of the stages described above during a session of Parliament. A bill that has died on the order paper can, however, be reintroduced as a new bill, with a new bill number, in the next session of Parliament.. __________________________________

Legislation - In Canada laws are made at the federal level by Parliament and at the provincial levels by the provincial legislatures. There is a process involved which carries… what is called a Bill (or a proposed law) into force when it receives Royal Assent, or on a day specified in the legislation, or upon proclamation. Common Law - Law is also created in Canada, and throughout out the common law countries of the world, by judges. Common law is judge made law. When a judge makes a decision in a case, it becomes a binding precedent which other judges must follow if faced with the same issue. However, the law, as with most things, changes in time too. So, what is law today could change tomorrow, or next week, or in 20 years, etc.. Therefore, in Canada, the elected officials make law (legislation, or written laws), and judges make law (common law).
They absolutely do, except where the crime could result in the death penalty. Except for that one thing, Canada and US law enforcement authorities cooperate very closely.

A persons last will and testament dictates how property is divided. When a person dies without a will, inheritance in Canada can become very complex. A person who has died wit…hout a will has then died intestate. Succession and Family Laws are then then followed. These laws are governed provincially and vary considerably from province to province. It is important to note that a will is null and void upon a marriage unless the will was made specifically made in contemplation of marriage. However, in the province of Quebec a will still stands regardless if a marriage occurs.
Some of the laws are 1. Don't drink and drive 2. Stop at stop signs/lights 3.Don't make illegal U turns 4. Respect peoples property-Don't STEAL STUFF 5.Respect peopl…es lives-Don't Murder Those are some of the important ones on the road and in everyday life!
How a Government Bill becomes Law - Canada Prepared by Inba Kehoe, Government Documents, Stauffer Library, Queen's University The following guide will explain the pr…ocess by which a typical government initiated bill becomes law. This guide provides an overview of the Federal Legislative Process. Adapted from "The Federal Legislative Process in Canada". NOTE: To become law, a bill must first be introduced in either the Senate or the House of Commons. It must then pass through various stages in each House: first, second and third reading. Then it must receive Royal Assent. A. DEFINITIONS Public Bills These are proposals for laws that will affect the public in general. Most public bills are introduced by Government Ministers. Bills sponsored by the Government are numbered from C-1 to C-200 in order of presentation. If they are introduced first in the Senate, they are numbered starting S-1. Private Bills These are limited in scope: they concern an individual or group of individuals only. They confer a right on some person or group, or relieve them of a responsibility. B. POLICY PROPOSAL Most legislation originates with the Government. Policy proposal requiring legislation is submitted to Cabinet by Minister(s). C. CABINET Policy proposal is considered by the appropriate Cabinet committee and recommendations are made to the Cabinet. If Cabinet approves, the responsible Ministry issues drafting instructions to the Legislation Section of the Department of Justice. Draft bill is prepared in two official languages and approved by the responsible Minister. Draft bill is presented to Cabinet for approval. If approved it is ready to be introduced in Parliament. D. PARLIAMENT FIRST READING First reading in either the Senate or the House of Commons. Bill is printed. SECOND READING Second reading in the same House of Parliament. Members debate and vote on the principle of the bill. The House may decide to refer the bill to a legislative, standing or a special committee, or to Committee of the Whole. CONSIDERATION IN COMMITTEE Consideration by the appropriate parliamentary committee (clause-by-clause study of the bill). Committee can summon witnesses and experts to provide it with information and help in improving the bill. REPORT STAGE Committee reports the bill to the House clearly indicating any amendments proposed. House considers amendments and votes for or against them. THIRD READING Debate and vote on bill as amended. NOTE: Once bill has been read 3 times in the House, it is sent to the Senate for its consideration. E. ROYAL ASSENT Bill is presented to the Governor General for assent. Governor General may assent to Bill in the Queen's name, withhold assent or reserve assent. When Bill is given Royal Assent it becomes law. F. IN FORCE Statute is in force: upon Royal Assent, or when it is proclaimed by the Governor General, or on a day specified in the act Different sections may come into force at different times
Bills in Canada are created by the Parliament of Canada, which consists of the Queen (represented by the Governor General), the Senate (an appointed chamber), and the Hous…e of Commons (an elected chamber). Bills must be passed by both the Senate and the House of Commons, before being presented to the Governor General for Royal Assent. Once a bill has been passed by both Houses and has received Royal Assent, it becomes law. The process in both the Senate and the House of Commons is similar. In the case of both chambers, bills are introduced with first reading (i.e., they are introduced and distributed to members of the chamber). The broad principles of the proposed law are then debated with second reading. Bills are then referred to a committee, which then reports back to the chamber with suggestions. Once a bill has been approved at third reading (where technical issues with the bill are debated), it moves on to the other House for the same process.
All of the provinces in Canada have motorcycle noise laws. Motorcycles are manufactured with silencers on the exhaust, and if the noise level goes above 100 dB at 5000 rpm… on a bike with a 3-4 cylinder engine, you will be fined. Edit: All noise laws are either part of the Highway Traffic Act (and there's a different one for each province) or a city's by-laws statutes....and THOSE can all be different as well. So it's never a consistent answer.
