British North American Act
The BNAA (British North America Act) formed Canada's government and Canada itself as a country. It was the first constitution of Canada. It entailed the exact powers of both the Federal and individual Provincial governments. Its main purpose was the confederation and formation of Canada and the joining of individual provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec) to form it. It was, though, still, essentially just an edited version of the 72 resolutions with more focus on the needs of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec instead of trying to please all of the Maritime Colonies (as much). Some of the "authors" of the BNAA faced similar problems faced in earlier conferences especially the continuing concern from the smaller two Maritime provinces (New Brunswick and Nova Scotia) who's delegates believed still that they would have little influence in a larger government and that they could lose their cultures and laws if the government had the power to reverse any law within a year of it being in affect. The British North America Act was without a doubt one of the most influential documents in the history of Canada's creation.
