British North America Act
The constitution of the Dominion; the Act
by which the scattered colonies of British North America were united in
one Confederation. Drafted at the Quebec Conference, 1864; discussed and
passed in the form of resolutions, in the Legislature of Canada, 1865;
put in final shape at the Westminster Conference, 1866; passed by the
Imperial Parliament, and proclaimed, 1867. The essential feature of this
Act, and that which distinguishes it most clearly from the Constitution
of the United States, is the provision that all matters not specifically
assigned to the provinces belong to the Dominion, the reverse being the
case under the United States Constitution. Broadly speaking, the Act
gives the Dominion exclusive jurisdiction over the regulation of trade
and commerce, the postal service, customs and inland revenue, military
and naval service, navigation and shipping, currency and coinage,
banking, weights and measures, patents and copyrights, naturalization,
Indians. To the provinces it gives exclusive jurisdiction over direct
taxation, management and sale of public lands, timber, provincial
prisons, hospitals, asylums, etc., municipal institutions,
administration of justice, education. =Index=: (Sir John A Macdonald era) Conference in
