Access to available resources

CAIJ is the tool for legal practitioners

CAIJ is a joint initiative of the Quebec Bar, the Réseau d’information juridique du Québec (RIJQ), the Association des avocats et avocates de province (AAP), the Montreal Bar and the Quebec City Bar to ensure access to quality legal information for legal professionals. Most of the specialized resources are available under authentication, or in locations accessible with the CAIJ card, such as Quebec courthouse libraries.

Today, CAIJ members include members of the judiciary, members of the Quebec Bar, members of the Chambre des notaires du Québec, members of the Association canadienne des parajuristes, law students, and École du Barreau students.

For members of the public, CAIJ’s resources and content collaborate with and support the free resources already available to the public, whether established or managed by the legal community or the State. Here are just a few examples:
