Ontario E-Laws Site Revamped

The Ontario government has just released version 4 of its E-Laws website.

E-Laws contains the province's statutes and associated regulations as well as legislative history tables for amendments and repeals.

What's new:
  • Current Consolidated law given prominence to assist new and occasional users
  • More precise currency information for consolidated law
  • Direct link from home page to the most frequently accessed laws
  • Search and Browse functions available on a single web page for each 'category' of law
  • Basic and advanced search capacities combined for easier searching
  • Search and Browse functions available for Period in Time and Repealed, Revoked and Spent law
  • Detailed Legislative History tables available for regulations (formerly available only for statutes)
  • Updated, issue-specific "Help" text
  • Expanded FAQs and Glossary
As I reported in the July 8, 2007 Library Boy post entitled Ontario E-Laws Now Presumed Authentic for Court, E-Laws will (eventually) be considered an official statement of Ontario law, although an item in the FAQ on the E-Laws site adds that this will come into effect via a regulation that has not yet been passed.
