Canadian professors and their students are eligible to join the Lancaster House Student Online Access Program, providing access to ALL of our online publications at no cost. If you are instructing a course in the area of labour law, labour arbitration, industrial relations, collective bargaining, human rights law, or occupational health and safety in the 2021-2022 academic year, we invite you to take advantage of this special offer.

By choosing to do so, you and your students will receive access, at no cost, to the essential resources contained in our online platform, First ResortTM

  • Current Awareness eAlerts - an online, cross-linked database of all Lancaster House reports, with links to the full text of decisions on CanLII (where available). eAlerts present key labour and employment law decisions, with commentary and analysis for twenty-one different databases, each of which covers a discrete area of labour and employment law.

The publication can be accessed online through a table of contents, an index, or a keyword search.

This fully searchable online service is updated regularly with new clauses, commentary on the latest arbitration awards, and legislative changes that affect collective bargaining.
