Did you know that the Law Society of Saskatchewan Library carries a complete print set of Saskatchewan statutes dating back to the 1880s?
Online coverage of Saskatchewan statutes is not complete. While current Saskatchewan statutes are available through the Queen’s Printer FreeLaw website, online coverage of historical Saskatchewan statutes is limited and spotty.
It is usually necessary to consult print sources when researching Saskatchewan statutes more than a couple of decades old.
Additionally, only the print Saskatchewan statutes are considered official. The Queen’s Printer website explains “the original statutes, as published in the bound sessional and annual volumes, and the regulations, as published in Parts II and III of The Saskatchewan Gazette, should be consulted for all purposes of interpretation and application of the law.”
If you have any questions about legislative research, ask a Law Society Librarian. Library staff provide legal research assistance to members in person, on the telephone, or by email.
