Historical Versions of Statutes and Regulations are now on CanLII

As of March 5, 2009  CanLII will be providing access to older versions of  federal legislation as well as legislation from  Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Quebec.  Coverage will go back at least 5 years.  Users can compare different versions of a particular statute, find a statute as it was in force on a particular date,  noteup specific sections of a statute, link to cases that have considered that statute or subscribe to an RSS feed which keeps track of changes to a particular statute.  CanLII has plans to add statutes and regulations for the remaining jurisdictions by  the end of the summer of 2009.
