Supreme Court Case Materials
Select Charter Cases
This project began in 2002 with a small grant from the University of Toronto Courseware Fund. For the initial project faculty selected 36 important Charter cases. These facta were scanned and organized by the Bora Laskin Law Library, which has maintained and updated the collection for the use of University of Toronto Faculty of Law students and faculty. The Asper Centre is happy to make this collection available to users of this site for non-commercial purposes in the public interest to foster public knowledge, education and scholarship in respect of constitutional law in Canada. We will be adding cases periodically to update and enhance the collection. Materials from Supreme Court cases which were commenced after February 1, 2009 are available on the Supreme Court of Canada website.
Any inquiries in respect of the material contained in this collection should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
