Orders in Council

An Order in Council is a legal instrument made by the Lieutenant Governor, acting on the advice of Cabinet or the Premier, pursuant to a statutory authority or, less frequently, the royal prerogative. All Orders in Council take legal effect only when signed by the Lieutenant Governor.
