The Statutes of Canada (SC) consists of the compilation of all the federal laws of Canada passed by the Parliament of Canada since Confederation in 1867. The Revised Statutes of Canada (RSC) is the consolidation of the statutes of Canada incorporating amendments and acts that have been added since the last revision. Thus far there have been six revisions: in 1886, 1906, 1927, 1952, 1970, and 1985; the Statutes of Canada are its own legal code. They are the federal legal code of Canada that contains the federal laws and statutes enacted by the Parliament of Canada, and are enacted into their own unified code; the Statutes of Canada are organized by alphabetical order and are updated and amended by the Government of Canada from time to time.[1][2]
