The following sections will help you find cases that have considered a particular section of legislation.
To find selected or leading cases use secondary sources such as books and commentary.
In CanLII (open access):
In WestlawNext Canada (UniMelb staff & student access):
TIP: While most of the same cases will be found in both the above databases, they will have slightly different coverage, so if you want to find as many cases as possible on your legislative provision, use both databases! For example, a search for s 35 of the Constitution Act 1982, shows that CanLII has fewer cases citing s 35 and all its sub-sections than Westlaw. However, CanLII has more cases citing sub-section 35(2) than Westlaw.
NOTE: The online databases referred to above generally only have coverage from the 1990s to current. To find older cases considering statutory provisions, you will need to use the print Canadian Statute Citations (previously called the Statutes Judicially Considered).
