I know that "legislation" is almost always used in its uncountable form.
legislation: a law or set of laws suggested by a government and made official by a parliament
But what about in the following case? Let's say there are 13 provinces and territories in a country, each with its own provincial government and ministries.
When it comes to minerals/mining/natural resources, these provinces each have a dedicated ministry and a dedicated Act (or laws). Although these acts have the same purpose (i.e., they describe the laws related to recourses), they are named differently:
Let's say Province 1 has a legislation called "Mineral Tax Act"
Province 2, 5, and 8 = "Mines and Minerals Act"
Province 3 and 7 = "Mineral Resources Act"
Province 10 = "Mining Act"
You get the idea. They also have different names for other laws, e.g., "Education Act", "Schools and Universities Act", etc.
In this case, is it fair to write "legislations"?
We need to collect data from the ministry websites and the mineral resources legislations of all 13 provinces and territories.
I think that using the uncountable "legislation" here would indicate that there is just one Act (or set of laws) for all 13 provinces and territories.
If this is ambiguous, what would be a clear way to write this? Also note that I am writing "mineral resources" here as a broader term to capture all the acts that are essentially the same but named differently.
