Legal Aid BC

Legal Aid BC is a non-profit organization created by the Legal Services Society (LSS) Act in 1979 to provide legal information, advice, and representation services. Our priority is to serve the interests of people with low incomes, but many of our services are available to all British Columbians. Our services are offered at legal aid locations throughout the province, and online through our websites: legalaid.bc.ca, family.legalaid.bc.ca, aboriginal.legalaid.bc.ca, and mylawbc.com.
