CanLII Takes Over Best Guide to Canadian Legal Research

The Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII), the free law society-supported Internet site for finding Canadian jurisprudence and legislation, is taking over the Best Guide to Canadian Legal Research, a well-known website launched by Catherine Best in 1998:
"Catherine Best retired In 2015 and she generously donated the site to CanLII to use as our legal research guide going forward. Best says:"
'The world of legal research is dramatically different than it was in 1998. However, the site’s emphasis on research process and effective electronic research continues to fill a need. It will be fascinating to see what changes the next 15 years will bring.'
"The site has been renamed The Canadian Legal Research and Writing Guide (...) It will be maintained and expanded by a national editorial board of legal researchers."
The Board is composed of:
  • Melanie Bueckert, Legal Research Counsel with the Manitoba Court of Appeal in Winnipeg
  • Maryvon Côté, Acting Head at the Nahum Gelber Law Library at McGill University in Montreal
  • Yasmin Khan, Head Librarian at the City of Toronto Law Library
  • Mandy Ostick, Manager, Library Services at Bull Housser in Vancouver
  • Jennifer Taylor, Research Lawyer at Stewart McKelvey in Halifax
