Finding Canadian Law


In this section, we provide links to various databases that will help you find primary Canadian law (ie, cases and legislation).

  • Comprehensive databases provide access to law from many different jurisdictions and topics.
  • Subject specific resources are those that usually only focus on a few areas of law (for example, labour or criminal law).
  • Under the federal and provincial heading, you will find links to the various federal and provincial government departments, courthouses, and related organizations for law from that jurisdiction.
  • Under the historical heading, you will find resources listed that can help you find older legal material.
