Good news for legislation researchers

Good news is coming from all over!

Alberta - the folks at the clerks office at the Legislative Assembly responded to a data need (AB bills no longer on LNQL as of April 1, 2009) by adding copies of historical bills. See my ELLA blog post for specifics, but here is a link: http://www.assembly.ab.ca/net/index.aspx?p=bills_home
and follow the Bills from Previous Sessions link.

Additions to point-in-time legislative databases

Today CanLII launches point-in-time legislation databases for three provinces: Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island.
Users of these provinces' consolidated Acts and regulations now have access to versions as they came into force since 2004 or so, as well as to current versions updated weekly from governments' websites.

Only about six months after having launched its new legislation publication system, CanLII now publishes point-in-time legislation for the Federal level as well as for all Canadian provinces. Legislation from the Northwest Territories, Yukon and Nunavut is currently being prepared and will be migrated to the new system by the end of September.
Wow!
