Repost with Permission from The CanLII Blog
We are happy to be able to announce that we have completed a project to add the annual statutes for the Province of Saskatchewan to CanLII back to 1978.
This project was made possible by a grant from the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan, and we are grateful to the board and staff of the foundation for supporting this work. Thanks also goes to the staff at the Law Society of Saskatchewan Libraries for discussing priorities for the legal research environment in Saskatchewan. Finally, we would like to thank CAIJ for funding the initial development required to add annual statutes to CanLII, which started with the Federal statutes and the annual statutes of Quebec.
Annual statutes are an important addition to CanLII’s primary law collections because they are the laws as passed by Canada’s parliamentary bodies. Without access to the annual statutes, it can be difficult to navigate legislation over time.
The annual statutes database brings together the statutes once enacted by the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan.
