1.3 Introduction to the Canadian Abridgment


Published by Thomson Carswell the Canadian Abridgment is a comprehensive legal research tool used to locate cases, statutes, and secondary legal literature. It summarizes (digests) Canadian federal and provincial cases.  Cases relating exclusively to the Québec Civil Code are included in the case and statute citations, but not in the digests. Starting in 1987 it also includes unreported cases from federal and provincial courts of appeal.


Use the Abridgment to find cases by case name; cases on a specific legal issue; cases, statutes, and words & phrases judicially considered in Canadian decisions; the legislative history of a statute or the progress of a bill; and secondary literature (books, articles, case comments, etc.) on a specific subject.
