Scope and content

The sub-series includes the original proclamation declaring that the Constitution Act, 1982, shall come into effect as of 17 April 1982. This proclamation was signed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Parliament Hill, Ottawa, on 17 April 1982, as part of the official proclamation ceremony. A second proclamation declaring that the Constitution Act, 1982, shall come into effect as of 17 April 1982 was signed by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II inside the Parliament Buildings, Ottawa, on 17 April 1982.

The sub-series also includes the original "Constitutional Amendment Proclamation, 1983" providing for the first amendment to the Constitution Act, 1982. It resulted from a draft amendment proposed at a constitutional conference, held in March 1983, which identified certain rights of aboriginal peoples. The proclamation, which was signed at Rideau Hall, Ottawa, on 21 June 1984, guaranteed that a series of constitutional conferences would be held over several years to define special rights for Indians, Inuit and Metis in Canada which eventually will be included in the Constitution.
