Target Audience: Librarians from any field who need to find and understand Canadian legislation

Learning Outcomes:
1) Participants will be able to identify and explain core Canadian legislative concepts to patrons.
2) Participants will be able to identify and explain Canadian statutory citations.

Have you ever looked a Canadian statute but didn’t understand how it was amended? Has your law firm recently retained a Canadian client? Have you ever had to find a Canadian statute but were left empty-handed? Are you just plain curious as to how your neighbors to the north draft, organize, and publish their legislation? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, this program is for you! At this session, you will learn about the differences between Canadian and American legislation, how Canadian legislation becomes law, how it is organized and published, and how it is consolidated. Three experienced Canadian law librarians will provide the introductory material you need.
