After lengthy negotiations, the federal government and the four provinces agreed in 1930 on a series of agreements on the transfer of natural resource management to provincial governments, known as natural resource transfer agreements. Parliament[6] and the four provincial parliaments[7] then adopted actions to implement the agreements. Finally, in 1930, the British Parliament passed the Constitution Act[8] to ratify the agreements and enshrine them in the Constitution of Canada.
