Civil Chambers Program

The Civil Chambers Program provides legal assistance and representation services to low- and modest-income individuals engaged in civil (non-family) chambers litigation matters before the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal in Vancouver.

The Civil Chambers Program operates at 800 Smithe Street in Vancouver.  Twice a week, volunteer lawyers from Vancouver-area law firms provide pro bono legal assistance and representation to unrepresented low- and modest-income litigants appearing in civil chambers (BC Supreme Court and BC Court of Appeal). 

Individuals (not organizations or companies) may call 604-603-5797 or email psamarakoone@accessprobono.ca to determine their eligibility and to book an appointment with a Chambers Lawyer.
