A Research Tip

  • Research & Writing

When you are trying to find a source that has been cited online, it can be very frustrating to discover that the link no longer works. If you are looking for a website cited in a Supreme Court of Canada judgment, you’ll be happy to know that the Office of the Registrar of the SCC has archived the content of the majority of the online sources cited by the Court between 1998 and 2016

For 2017 on, any online source that was cited in the “Authors Cited” section in SCC judgments has been captured and archived. When a judgment cites such a source, an “archived version” link is provided. You can see an example of this in J.W. v. Canada (Attorney General), 2019 SCC 20.

    Thanks for sharing the links archive by the SCC. Have any provincial or territorial courts done something similar?

    building a link archive might be the next great CanLII offering…
