Updated July 21, 2017

Three Style Guides: Different Rules

MLA style refers to uniform legal citation styles for the country of the legislation, so for Canadian legal documents, the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, 7th ed. should be used in this format: Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, s2, Part 1 of the Constitution Act, 1982, being Schedule B to the Canada Act 1982 (UK), 1982, c11. Web). APA style cites legal sources as works with no author: Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, s 2, Part I of the Constitution Act, 1982, being Schedule B to the Canada Act 1982 (UK), 1982, c 11. Chicago style varies little from APA style: Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Part I of the Constitution Act, 1982, being Schedule B to the Canada Act 1982 (UK), 1982, c 11.
