|Federation of Law Societies of Canada|
The Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII; French: Institut canadien d'information juridique) is a non-profit organization created and funded by the Federation of Law Societies of Canada in 2001 on behalf of its 14 member societies. CanLII is a member of the Free Access to Law Movement, which includes the primary stakeholders involved in free, open publication of law throughout the world.
CanLII offers free public access to over 2.4 million documents across more than 300 case law and legislative databases. It is used by lawyers, legal professionals and the general public, with usage averaging over 30,000 visits per day. The case law database is reportedly growing at a rate of approximately 120,000 new cases each year, 20% of which are historic cases which are included to enrich existing databases.
In March 2018, CanLII launched a commentary program including law reviews, e-books, articles, public legal education materials, and reports.
In June 2020, CanLII started actively promoting the CanLII guest writer program.
