Welcome

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to pandemiclaw.ca.  I'm happy to report that the goals of this site - to provide up-to-date, timely and useful references to laws enacted to respond to the COVID-19 crisis - have been met by governments, law libraries and blogs published by lawyers in private practice.  However, as I have not had the time to curate and edit this site into a more useful community resource, it has languished and failed to fulfill its purpose.

Therefore, I will be decommissioning this site at the end of January 2021.

Why are we here?

Welcome to PandemicLaw.ca.  I hope that this can become a collaborative site to for collection of useful resources for the legal profession during this difficult time.

As a former civil litigator and current general counsel, my bias is toward Ontario law and, specifically, employment issues, but it is my hope that the resources available on this site will be of broader applicability.  If you're a Canadian lawyer, paralegal, mediator, law librian, professor, law firm content manager, or anyone else in a position to contribute, I encourage you to sign up and start editing.

Thanks for being part of the community.

Where's the Content?

Pick a jurisdiction from the list of Books in the header.  Ontario and Federal probably have the most content at the moment.

Potential resources for incorporation into this site are being collected and can be viewed in an Airtable database.

A note on organization

I anticipate it will take a few days for a proper organizational structure to emerge.

This Wiki is using BookStack and so is organized by Book.  As of now I've organized matter by jurisdiction, but I'd like to hear feedback on whether topical organization would be more useful.
