Rule 93 - Citation

Citation and meaning of references
93.01 (1) These Rules may be cited as the Nova Scotia Civil Procedure Rules.
  (2) The phrase “these Rules” refers to all Rules in the Nova Scotia Civil Procedure Rules, including Rules made under the Judicature Act, the Divorce Act, the Controverted Elections Act, and the Criminal Code.
  (3) These Rules refer to a Rule, or a subdivision of a Rule, as “Rule” followed by the number of the Rule or the subdivision of the Rule, such as Rule 4, Rule 4.04, Rule 4.04(4), Rule 4.04(4)(b), or Rule 4.04(4)(b)(i).
  (4) A reference to a provision in these Rules that has been subdivided includes the subdivided provisions, such as in the following examples:
   
(a)
a reference to Rule 4 includes Rules 4.01 to 4.22;
   
(b)
a reference to Rule 4.01(2) includes Rules 4.01(2)(a) to (c).
  (5) A Rule may be cited in the same way it is referenced in these Rules, or with the phrase “Nova Scotia Civil Procedure Rule” instead of “Rule”.
  (6) These Rules use the phrase “this Rule” without a numerical reference to mean the whole of the Rule in which the phrase is used including the subdivisions, such that “this Rule” means Rule 93 in this Rule.
