Beginning on March 7th, repairs and replacements to the overhead lighting in the Great Library will begin and continue for several weeks.
There will be construction scaffolding erected starting in the south area near the entrance. There will be limited access during this initial phase of repairs. Access will improve as the project progresses north away from the entrance.
Access to books, computers, and work space will be restricted during this time. Please see staff if you require resources during this time.

Bill 222 The Public Schools Amendment Act (Nutrition Programs) – “This Bill amends The Public Schools Act to require the minister to report each year by school division and school district on the schools that provided a nutrition program during the previous fiscal year.

The Supreme Court of Canada has developed an e-filing portal that will make it easier to file documents. The portal will be available on January 30, 2023 through a link on the Supreme Court of Canada website.
The e-filing portal will be the primary method for filing the electronic version of a document, including documents that are required to be bound, notwithstanding Rule 19(1)(c). The other provisions of Rule 19 continue to apply, including the requirement to file a print version of a document within five business days of the filing of the electronic version.
The portal cannot be used for the filing of sealed and confidential documents referred to in Rule 19.1.
If the portal cannot be used or if the person filing is unable to produce an electronic version of a document, instructions are available through the portal.
The Manitoba Law Library would like to acknowledge with gratitude that we are situated on Treaty One Territory, the traditional lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree and Dakota peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
