BC Public Interest Advocacy Centre (BCPIAC)

BC Public Interest Advocacy Centre (BCPIAC) is a not-for-profit law office based in Vancouver, Coast Salish Territories. Our mission is to advance the interests of groups that are generally unrepresented or underrepresented in issues of major public concern. We do this through two areas of work: representing low and fixed income people of British Columbia in matters that relate to utility regulation; and, strategic anti-poverty and social justice issues before courts and tribunals in BC.
