NOTE: The APA Manual (2010) recommends following the Bluebook citation style for Canadian legislation. Refer to the Simon Fraser University library website for additional formats such as case law, parliamentary debates, and regulations.

There are two options for citing this source in-text:

1) The Bill name and number, date of publication, and page number(s) are placed in brackets at the end of the sentence. When there are no page numbers, refer to the paragraph number or heading within the text:

2) Alternatively, the citation may be integrated into the sentence with a signal phrase and narrative:
