Legal Cases

The CanLII.org website provides access to court judgments from all Canadian courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada, federal courts, and the courts in all Canada’s provinces and territories. CanLII.org also contains decisions from many tribunals nationally.

CanLII started by publishing current cases, which courts and tribunals sent us as they were written starting in the early 2000s. For most Canadian courts, our collection now spans more than 18 years of these “organically acquired” cases.

We have also completed several projects to add historical cases with the goal of offering a comprehensive resource for jurisprudence for access to Canadian law. See this page to learn about our more recent additions of historical cases.

To see more detail about what our databases contain, please see this page.

Legislation

CanLII.org contains the consolidated statutes and regulations of every jurisdiction in Canada. In the last few years, we have added annual statutes Federally and for the provinces of New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, and Quebec.

Commentary

Our companion website, CanLII Connects, hosts a database of case commentary and case summaries by the legal community. This commentary is linked to and from the caselaw on CanLII.org.

Last but not least, we have a growing number of books, law journals, articles, reports, and other resources available electronically in CanLII.org’s Commentary section. Click here to browse this content.
