Decisia in action

Canada’s First-Ever Legal Website

The Supreme Court of Canada judgments website was launched by Lexum in 1992, and was the very first legal website to be developed in Canada. At the time there were only three other websites in the country. It was also the world’s first bilingual legal website.

“We chose to use Decisia to make our public record of decisions easily accessible and fully searchable.   The database blends seamlessly with our website and is easy to use.  Prior to using Decisia our tribunal decisions were posted to our website by category type but could not be searched.  Having easily accessible and searchable decisions increases our transparency and advances access to justice.”
