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. For more about our history, here’s a brief overview.
We’re funded by the provincial government, with additional support from the Law Foundation of BC and the Notary Foundation of BC. We’re accountable to the public and remain independent of government.
