‘Charterpedia’ Launched by Department of Justice

If you were paying attention on twitter and/or were very on the ball a couple weeks ago, you may have noticed that the Department of Justice launched a new online service called the Charterpedia, and it is really great! This new resource provides summaries and note ups on every Charter section, and it is now available free of charge to everyone!

As per its own description:

This Charterpedia provides legal information about the Charter and contains information about the purpose of each section of the Charter, the analysis or test developed through case law in respect of the section, and any particular considerations related to it. Each Charterpedia entry cites relevant case law, and citations to Supreme Court of Canada decisions are hyperlinked whenever possible.

Check it out!
