Connecting: CanLII Case Summaries for Paralegals – Aug. 31


CanLII Connects is a free collection of summaries and commentaries on Canadian case law. The project was created to make it faster and easier for legal professionals and the public to connect with high-quality legal commentary on Canadian court decisions.

CanLII is a non-profit organization created and funded by 14 member provincial and territorial organizations within the Federation of Law Societies.
The fast-growing collection includes contributions from Paralegal SCOPE Magazine and national law firms, major regional firms, academics, leading practitioners and legal bloggers, research specialists, commercial publishers and law societies.

This free resource includes decisive and persuasive cases that are relevant to the paralegal scope of practice — including Landlord & Tenant, Administrative Tribunals, legal principles in torts and small claims, Provincial Offences and human rights. Contributions are accepted from those with a demonstrated capacity for legal analysis.

Here is a selection of recent contributions to CanLII Connects:
  • Can a regulator rely on a “qualified privilege” defence to defamation? Yes.
  • Does UK “Succession to the Crown” Bill violate s. 15 of the Charter? No.
  • Mitigation of Damages not a “Genuine Issue for Trial” in Wrongful Dismissal Case.
  • Hryniak v. Mauldin, 2014 SCC 7 – Cited 203 times in seven months – SCOPE contributor Andrew Hyland’s among those who saw the wave coming.
