Types of Services
We provide lawyers to represent you before government boards and tribunals.
Summary Legal Advice
We give free legal advice on the telephone, by appointment or on a walk-in basis in the areas of law listed above. There are no financial restrictions when asking for summary advice.
We do not practice in all areas of law. If we are unable to help you, we may be able to refer you to someone who can.
We do not cover criminal, family, civil, provincial offences, real estate or immigration law. We do not issue legal aid certificates.
If you need help with a criminal or a family law matter, then please call the Legal Aid Area office in your county for a legal aid certificate and a list of lawyers who practice criminal or family law.
Public Legal Education and Publications
At your request we can prepare presentations and workshops for you and/or your group. We also provide pamphlets on a wide range of legal topics.
We develop initiatives and work together with other community organizations on projects that will provide a benefit to low income people and to advocate for the rights of low-income people.
Clients may be asked to reimburse disbursement costs if they have the means to do so.
