Referendum Act, S.C. 1992, c. 30.

Regulation Adapting the Canada Elections Act for the Purposes of a Referendum, SOR/2010-20.

Subsection 7(3) of the Referendum Act authorizes the Chief Electoral Officer to adapt, by regulation, the Canada Elections Act in any manner he considers necessary to apply that Act for the purposes of a referendum.
