CanLII Survey

According to a survey earlier this year commissioned by the Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII), the open access legal database is the electronic legal resource most frequently used by lawyers across Canada.

The percentage of those surveyed who used the following resources at least one a week:
  • CanLII - 39%
  • Provincial sites for legislation – 34%
  • Commercial services – between 17% and 29%
  • Various secondary material sources – 29%
  • Courts’ websites – 21%
  • Library services - 15%
The actual text of the survey and the methodology are not available on the CanLII website so caution is advisable. However, based on anecdotal evidence, I have no doubt that CanLII's popularity is high, and growing.
