BC Legislation Tables of Contents Now on CanLII

September 27, 2010

CanLII reported on September 24 that automatically-generated Tables of Contents are now included for BC statute and regulation databases, along with those of Ontario and Quebec, and that the same soon will follow for other jurisdictions. 

Statutes and regulations from British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec have been republished with automatically generated tables of contents and HTML anchors to parts’ headings, sections and subsections.

The tables of content that were already available at the federal level were also improved for better readability.

You will navigate more easily within legislative texts from these four databases. You will also be able to establish hyperlinks to specific parts, sections and subsections. For instance, a link to subsection 54(3.1) of the federal Broadcasting Act, S.C. 1991, c. 11 can be established with the following URL:

http://www.canlii.org/en/ca/laws/stat/sc-1991-c-11/latest/sc-1991-c-11.html#sec54subsec3.1

This feature will be implemented to other legislative databases in the coming months.

For more information, see the announcement on the CanLII blog.  Hat tip to the New & Notable post at Courthouse Libraries BC for the news.
