CHAPTER 1 Risk Management and Sources of Law 11 [[ch01\40other\003Chapter1ConstitutionAct1867Sections91and92.doc]] For For Constitution Act 1867, sections 91 and 92 [Sections 91 and 92 of the Constitution Act 1867 determine the legislative competence of the two levels of government: federal and provincial/territorial. Each level of government is entitled to create laws only within its areas of authority. If a government attempts to go outside of those areas, its actions will be ultra vires(“beyond the powers”) and void. Notice that section 91 gives the federal government legislative juris- diction “in relation to all Matters not coming within the Classes of Subjects by this Act assigned exclu- sively to the Legislatures of the Provinces.” Consequently, in addition to having authority within the areas mentioned in s 91, the federal government also has authority in any other areas that are not given to the provincial governments under s 92.] Constitution Act 1867 DISTRIBUTION OF LEGISLATIVE POWERS POWERS OF THE PARLIAMENT 91.
