Citing Canadian Legal Documents (Pharm 362)

Since the Citing Medicine guide is an American publication, it does not provide detail on citing Canadian legal documents.

The Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (aka the McGill Guide) is the preferred resource across citation formats for legal references in Canada. Some example citations based on the McGill Guide are available on this Guide to Canadian Legal Citation.
