FW: Canadian Charter of Rights Decision Website Hi everyone,

I just got back from holidays and wanted to share this positive note I recently received from Mr. Carrier.

I guess the question now is how many other fragile, but important information services are ‘out there’ that
are either at the mercy of someone who might soon be retiring, or worst, there is no funding support to fill that person’s shoes to continue the service?

Dear Mr. Deveau,

We were pleased to learn that the Department of Justice has agreed to provide the Canadian Charter of Righs Decisions database to CANLII, ensuring continued free access for Canadians to this valuable resource.  

We are glad that the concerns voiced by the library community have been heard and responded to, and that an alert has gone out to members of CLA and of CALL to monitor and report any other important sites which are in jeopardy of disappearing.  We at Library and Archives Canada will continue to be vigilant in this regard and have been building a very large collection of e-publications.  Library and Archives Canada have also recently acquired the former Prime Minister's website.  With over 10,000 e-publications, the electronic collection at the LAC is growing rapidly.


Roch Carrier
