Provides legal aid in civil and criminal matters for people who cannot afford to pay for a lawyer from their own resources. For Albertans who qualify under the eligibility guidelines, they offer legal representation through an assigned lawyer. Visit http://www.legalaid.ab.ca/help/Pages/default.aspx for more information on services.

Legal aid also offers a free Emergency Protection Order Program, which provides victims of family violence with information and a lawyer who can help them to obtain and confirm protection orders. They attend court on a daily basis to represent Albertans who have experienced violence in their lives.

The Emergency Protection Order Program also provides ongoing information, risk assessment and safety plans to victims of family violence.
