The Saskatchewan Access to Legal Information (SALI) initiative connects justice stakeholders, information providers, and community organizations to amplify access to legal information and assistance in Saskatchewan through collaboration and partnership.
SALI creates resources, provides training, and publishes a newsletter to help legal information providers and community organizations connect members of the public with information about the law, legal advice/assistance, and community support.
Saskatchewan’s diverse population relies on access to legal information and legal assistance to meaningfully access justice. Check out SALI’s Accessing Legal Information in Saskatchewan infographic to learn more about how members of the public in Saskatchewan access and obtain legal information.
SALI has created a trio of user-friendly resources designed to assist legal information providers in connecting members of the public with legal information, assistance, and support.
SALI welcomes your feedback on these resources!
Saskatchewan’s Legal Information Guidelines help facilitate access to credible legal information. The Guidelines are a toolkit that can be relied on for guidance when providing legal information to the public.
SALI maintains a list of key legal resources relevant to Saskatchewan in addition to free publications provided by the Government of Saskatchewan and Public Legal Education Association of Saskatchewan. The list is curated to support libraries who may wish to add legal titles to their collections and concentrates on resources aligned to priority areas as identified through Saskatchewan-focused legal needs research.
Throughout 2021, SALI pursued an organizational refresh by offering a free virtual conference series and asking for feedback and ideas about future projects and directions. Nearly 300 attendees, a mix of community organizations, lawyers, and information providers engaged with SALI throughout the year and provided feedback. SALI is now moving forward with a robust new plan based on the feedback we received.
SALI is always open to feedback on how best to connect the public with legal information and assistance. What resources or assistance would be most helpful? Contact SALI if you have any feedback!
