  • Structure all case related information under one interface (docket information, data from the bulletins, filings / factums, webcasts, decisions);

  • Links on citations in the body of documents;
  • Links to appeal and first instance decisions available on CanLII;
  • Snippets or keywords displayed in search results;
  • Improved highlights of search results with navigation;
  • Ability to search in Webcasts;

  • Keywords displayed on updates for the mailing list / RSS / website;
  • Interface for mobile device;
  • Adding all PDFs from the report and making PDFs searchable"
