Full definition of "person" - Interpretation Act

Andre made this Official Information request to Ministry of Justice

The request was refused by Ministry of Justice.

From: Andre

Dear Ministry of Justice,

What is the full definition of "person" as contained in the Interpretation Act? The Act states that person includes a corporation sole, a body corporate, and an unincorporated body. Is there any other legislative reference within this Act which alters the definition of "person" from a corporation sole, a body corporate, and an unincorporated body?

I am a law abiding citizen and as such only require the specific facts as requested. I specifically request no opinions be given.

Yours faithfully,

Ministry of Justice
