About APA & Canadian law/government
The Publication Manual of the APA (BF 76.7 P83 2010) does not cover Canadian government sources nor legal decisions and court cases, though it does include some American government sources (section 7.03, p. 205 and Appendix 7.1, pp. 216-224).
Use this handout to learn some of the most often used citation and references formats.

The Online Writing Lab at Purdue University offers an online resource which can be used in some cases. However, it does not include everything required for citing sources in one place.
The APA citation style does not cover Canadian government sources, and has only a limited section on American government resources.
Please refer to the staff at the Library Reference Desk for clarification when citing Canadian government sources.
