Legal Help for Non-Profit Organizations

If you are a member of a small non-profit organization that operates in BC or if you seek to start a new non-profit organization in BC, we may find a lawyer or law firm to assist, inform or educate your organization.

Solicitors’ Program

The Solicitors’ Program is designed to facilitate the provision of specific pro bono legal services to charitable and non-profit community organizations of limited means.  We invite requests for assistance either by phone or via forms provided below, and then endeavour to match each request to a roster lawyer within workable reach.   Our staff screen requests for eligibility, connect community organizations to lawyers, and provide ongoing support and resources to roster lawyers.  Roster lawyers provide legal advice and assistance to community organizations in all areas of non-profit law, including incorporation and by-laws, registrations for charitable status, employment matters, contracts and lease agreements.
