Regulation is a law that is set out to assist in their application and interpretation of a statute. A regulation deals with topics related to the statute under which it is made. Its purpose is to provide details to give effect to the policy established by the statute. Regulations are considered “delegated legislation” because the authority to make them is delegated by the legislature in a statute. Usually, the authority is given to the lieutenant governor in council. Sometimes the authority is given to a minister of the government or to another person or body. The process for amending regulation is usually shorter than the process for amending a statute.
