All Supreme Court of Canada judgments from 1876 now online

All decisions published in the Supreme Court Reports since inception in 1875 are now available on the SCC Judgments website and CanLII.

Over the past 20 years, the SCC and Lexum have been working to fill in gaps in the Supreme Court judgment database, along with partners including the Law Foundation of Ontario, the Law Foundation of British Columbia, the Alberta Law Foundation, the Centre d’accès à l’information juridique in Quebec, CanLII and others.

The Supreme Court judgment database on CanLII, containing more than 10,000 decisions to date, also includes a few decisions not reported in the SCR.

The official SCC Judgments collection is updated within minutes of the public release of the judgments by the Court.
