Updating and Noting Up Legislation

When working with legislation, it is important to check to see if the legislation has been recently amended. A good starting place for updating legislation online is BC Laws.

You may also want to see if a court has interpreted any legislation sections you are using. You can note up your legislation using any of the three main case law databases (CanLII, WestlawNext Canada, or LexisNexis Quicklaw) or you can use an annotated statute such as Annotated British Columbia Local Government Act and Community Charter (available in print at the BC Courthouse Libraries).

For further guidance on updating and noting up legislation see the Legal Research and Writing guide.
