Finding and Researching Cases

Court decisions may also be referred to as judgments, reasons for judgment, or reasons. These are different than court orders which are generally only available directly from the court that issued the order and not available online. Not every decision is reported or formally published, some are delivered orally.

Reasons for judgment can be delivered immediately or reserved, when reserved the matter will be considered before the judge issues the judgment.

Written court decisions may be found in a few places; freely online, through paid databases and/or in print law reports. 

For most provinces, decisions from about the late 1990s onwards are available online for free.
