APB launches new Residential Tenancy Program

APB Program Manager, Priyan Samarakoone, makes the case in his blog for Clicklaw that low income renters and landlords need legal help now more than ever: http://blog.clicklaw.bc.ca   

Access Pro Bono has answered that call. Marie-Noel Campbell, the staff lawyer behind the Mental Health Program, has built a new program based on the same model with students and senior lawyers filling a gap in our legal aid system as best as volunteers and pro bono lawyers can.

The new Residential Tenancy Program began training at the end of August, and will be helping low income tenants, and low income landlords, with hearings starting in the fall. Contact us at  tenancylaw@accessprobono.ca for more information.
