Are you referring to statutory construction? An intrinsic aid is something you can get just by looking at the statute and being aware of normal rules of the English language. For example, the statute's short title, a dictionary or the rules of grammatical construction. An extrinsic aid is anything outside of this, such as Hansard. There's strict rules on when extrinsic aids can be used.

I'm referring to statutory interpretation. I'm not sure when or how I'm supposed to use each aid.

So the aids are used by Judges to help them interpret the words in a statute.

Intrinsic aids: Found inside the Act of Parliament itself.

Extrinsic aids: Resources found outside of the Act that Judges may use to help when interpreting the law.



Intrinsic examples: Long title, Schedules and Interpretation definition sections.

Extrinsic examples: Dictionaries, Previous Acts, Hansards.

(Assuming you have knowledge of what these actually are.)
