Explore Free Legal Resources in BC

Our team is here to support you with accessing free legal information through Legal Aid BC and help you connect with other legal resources. You can access these resources without us, however, many prefer to have a helping hand along the way.

The Resource Centre offers a separate Legal Advocacy Program, which provides full representation on issues such as tenancy, income and disability assistance, employment issues and more.
