Canadian legal decisions in APA citation style

  1. 1. INFORMATION LITERACY SKILLS DEVELOPMENT CANADIAN LEGAL CITATIONS IN APA Updated March 2017| 1 1 LEGAL MATERIALS: SPECIAL GUIDELINES AND EXAMPLES The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed., 2010) provides information for citing American law and government documents only. This handout provides guidelines for the types of Canadian legal materials that students might consult: court decisions, statutes, and other legislations. Because Canadian legal documents have no author, provide the first few words of the reference list entry and the date in the in-text citation. COTR students are encouraged to consult with their instructors for any preferences or requirements that may vary from the guidelines in this handout. The following examples integrate guidelines for both APA documentation style and Canadian legal citations. 2 COURT DECISIONS | COURT CASES Citing judges' decisions from court cases.
