Annual reports of The Law Society of Upper Canada and the Law Society of Ontario. The annual report gives an account of the Law Society’s performance and initiatives, provides statistical data, and reports the financial statements for the organization. From 1968 to 1985, the Treasurer’s report to the annual meeting was printed in the Law Society of Upper Canada’s publication "Gazette". Since 1986, the annual report has been separately published (with the 1990 report published in the Ontario Reports). A French version of the annual report was first published in 1991. Since 2002, the financial statements have been published separately from the annual report. Beginning in 2013, the Law Society has issued a web-based annual report, with PDF versions also being produced from 2015 to 2019. Archived websites containing the online annual reports for 2013 to 2018 can be found on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.
