Legal Resources, Clinics, and Referral Information

May 11, 2015

Below you’ll find a list of organizations across Canada that provide legal support, information, advice or representation. Some are public education and advocacy organizations that produce online or print materials that might help to meet your legal needs. Other organizations on the list are legal clinics, non-profit organizations that provide access to legal information and advice for people who might otherwise face barriers to accessing legal support. Their work is typically conducted or supervised by lawyers and funded by donation or the provincial government that hosts them.

The CCLA is a national organization that works to protect and promote fundamental human rights and civil liberties. To fulfill this mandate, the CCLA focuses on litigation, law reform, advocacy and public education. Our organization is not a legal clinic. As such, we are typically not in a position to provide members of the public with legal advice or direct legal representation. However, we do try to provide general legal information and appropriate referrals where possible.

If you have questions about this list or want to suggest new organizations to include, we welcome you to reach out to publicenquiries [at] ccla [dot] org.
