In an earlier post on defining Canada’s constitution and its various written and unwritten components, I classified the types of written components and listed some of them. Thankfully, the Faculty of Law of the University of Ottawa provides an excellent explanation of the British and Canadian statutes and orders-in-council that make up the constitution, as well as a comprehensive list. The Supreme Court of Canada considers Magna Carta and the English Bill of Rights parts of Canada’s constitution, so logically the Royal Proclamation of 1763 and the Quebec Act, 1774 also enjoy constitutional status.
I recommend this webpage for identifying the written constitution.

Thanks, Nick. I will add these links to the documents section.
