Wide Range of Conflict Resolution

The Resources You Need

Legal Research

Canadian Legal Information Institute (CanLII)

Legal information is no longer in the domain of the old tomes and stuffy librarians. Consolidated, nearly-current statutes in a searchable format; judicial decisions spanning decades; links between decisions; new commentary. All available for free. This is my go-to resources for the vast majority of legal research.

Subsidized Help

Legal Aid Alberta

Legal Aid Alberta provides legal representation to Albertans who meet financial eligibility guidelines. All youth are eligible to receive representation for criminal matters. Legal Aid provides coverage for serious criminal charges, family law issues, child welfare matters, immigration/refugee claims, adult guardianship/trusteeship, and income support. Please note that Legal Aid does not currently provide support for many civil law matters including personal injury, medical malpractice, etc.

Calgary Legal Guidance

Calgary Legal Guidance provides legal information and advice to low-income people who cannot afford a lawyer and do not qualify for Legal Aid. It can help with a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, family, criminal and civil issues. Free legal clinics operate Monday through Thursday evenings.

Women’s Centre Legal Advice Clinic
