Wills Clinic

APB, in partnership with the provincial Ministry of Attorney General, operates a weekly Will and Representation Agreement preparation clinic for modest and low-income people over the age of 55, and people with terminal illnesses.

Access Pro Bono’s Wills Clinic reopened in August 2020 to provide clients, who are over 55 years of age or terminally ill, with wills, representation agreements, and enduring powers of attorney, during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
