Orders in Council
An order-in-council (OIC) is a public document issued by the Lieutenant Governor on the advice of the Executive Council directing that certain action be undertaken under authority of legislation. An order is issued when a statute provides authority or permission for the Lieutenant Governor in Council to carry out certain actions or responsibilities (for example, to make regulations, to appoint the members of a board, to authorize certain land transactions or to approve certain initiatives with financial implications).
The Executive Council Office maintains this database which contains orders from 2003 to present. You may search for orders-in-council by meeting date, OIC number, statute or keyword. If you are looking for an order prior to 2003, please contact the Executive Council Office.
