8.3.1 Report series

(a) Official reports

The current official report series for the Supreme Court of Canada is the Canada Supreme Court Reports (SCR).

A table of the official report series for Canadian federal, provincial and territorial courts is set out in Appendix 3. Where available use the official report series in preference to unofficial report series.

(b) Unofficial report series

Many of the official Canadian report series are not commonly available in New Zealand. Accordingly, it is permissible to cite widely available unofficial report series if these are more readily available. Some of the more commonly available Canadian report series are the Dominion Law Reports, the Canadian Criminal Cases, the Western Weekly Reports and the Atlantic Provinces Reports.

Eg Burke v Cory (1959) 19 DLR (2d) 262 (ONCA).

Eg Seafarers International Union of Canada v Baltic Shipping Co (1975) 61 DLR (3d) 530 (FC).
