Ontario Reports decisions will be added to the CanLII collection, boosting the free resource by 25 per cent. The reports belong to the Law Society of Upper Canada.

Colin Lachance, President and CEO of CanLII, says this the single-largest one-time addition to the CanLII database. Some 15,000 leading and reported Ontario court decisions are to be available.

A panel of editors selects case law to be published in the OR. It is published by LexisNexis Canada and sent to Law Society members weekly.

“CanLII is very grateful to the Law Society of Upper Canada for making the full historical collection of OR case reports available to CanLII and for providing the funding necessary to bring them online,” Lachance says.
