The Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation, otherwise known as the McGill Guide, is the standard reference guide for citing legal works, whether they be decisions, legislation, journals, books or urls.
HeinOnline.org is a database of legal information, including journals and legislation. Now the two come together, with HeinOnline offering citations set to the McGill Guide standard. No more excuses for poor formatting of secondary sources.
HeinOnline is available free of charge to members of the Law Society of Manitoba, behind the Members Portal. If you need help accessing or using it, please contact us. We’re happy to walk you through the process.

You asked, they listened! Last month, CanLII announced that several law reviews would be added to the platform. Then, a few weeks ago, a couple of newsletters were added. Today, they announced even more commentary:
Last month we were delighted to announce that law journal articles and newsletters are now available in CanLII’s Commentary section, and now we get to tell you that we have added more books and reports.
Providing authoritative legal resources for the profession and the public while using CanLII’s intuitive search platform is fantastic. Kudos to CanLII and the Federation of Law Societies of Canada for the successful completion of this project.
Check the CanLII blog for the full announcement.
