For the Judiciary and members of the Nunavut Bar, the Nunavut Court of Justice Law Library offers access to the following databases:

LexisNexis – Quicklaw

 Carswell – WestlawNext

Lexum (Federation of Law Societies of Canada) – CanLII

 Carswell – Martin’s Criminal Code Database


In order to access any of these databases, please see the Manager, Court Library Services during open hours – these databases, with the exception of CanLII, are only accessible in the Law Library. Off-site access is not currently available.

The Manager, Court Library Services will assist with questions or provide mini-training sessions upon request with these databases in the Law Library.

Note: access is ONLY permitted to subscribed content – you may not access services which require payment per access

*All published decisions are distributed by the Nunavut Courts to LexisNexis, Carswell, and CanLII, however, these are commercial publishers and the Nunavut Courts cannot tell them what to publish. These publishers are very good at publishing most, if not all, of our decisions in their databases.
