This enactment is the third in a series of enactments drafted in the course of the harmonization of federal statutes by the Department of Justice of Canada as a result of the coming into force of the Civil Code of Québec in 1994, which substantially changed the concepts, institutions and terminology of civil law. It amends a number of statutes including the Canada Business Corporations Act and the Expropriation Act in order to ensure that each language version takes into account the common law and the civil law.
