Pivot Legal Society

Pivot Legal Society is a non-profit legal advocacy organization located in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Pivot is not a legal clinic or legal aid organization. Our mandate is to use the law strategically to achieve widespread social change affecting society's most marginalized. We work with low-income communities to develop legal strategies to address systemic problems affecting large numbers of people, and do not provide drop-in legal services or offer legal advice over the phone.
