Financial eligibility guidelines for legal aid (advice and representation) going up September 1, 2011

Effective Thursday, September 1, more people with low incomes in BC may qualify for legal aid (advice or representation). LSS is improving its financial eligibility guidelines for legal advice and representation services with a 2.4% cost of living increase. This will ensure that people don’t lose access to legal aid because of inflation. See Do I qualify for legal representation? and Do I qualify for legal advice? on the LSS website on or after September 1 to find the new household income guidelines.

Note that legal information continues to be available for free to all British Columbians.
