The Law Society Library has created video tutorials to assist with searching CanLII. Please visit the library website for help searching on CanLII for a case with a common name, searching case law on a point of law, searching for legislation and noting up cases.
Maritime Law Books, the publisher of the Saskatchewan Reports and various other case reporters, offers a free online database of their various provincial law reports series from 1969. The unedited cases are free, but there is a charge for access to the annotated versions. If you are unable to find a case on CanLII, try Maritime Law Books’ Raw Law.
