Were any acts renamed in the Revised Statutes of British Columbia, 1979?
Last revised April 16, 2018

According to the Commissioner's Preface to the Revised Statutes of British Columbia, 1979 (available in resource and regional libraries), renaming of acts was done extensively by the Legislature from 1961 to 1979. 

At least 130 name changes occured.  Seventy-four were stright name changes, and the remainder were re-enactments with a new name.  There were a further 58 changes where an Act or its substance was moved into an Act of another name. 

There were also at least 25 'roll-overs' - a re-enactment under the same name.

A Table of Concordance can be found at the beginning of the first volume, listing the public Acts from the RSBC 1960 and subsequent legislative sessions to 1979, with the disposition of each Act shown opposite.  Some of the acts were considered obsolete and were omitted from the consolidation but remained law until repealed.  This is indicated in the Table by the words 'Not Consolidated'.

The name changes are not listed in the Table of Legislative Changes, found at the back of the annual statute volumes.
