About the Organization

Since 1979, The Legal Services Society (LSS) has been the provider of legal aid in British Columbia. As a non-profit organization, our goal is to provide legal information, advice, and representation services to some of BC's most vulnerable and marginalized citizens: those who do not have the financial, educational, social or health resources to effectively access the justice system when their families, freedom, or safety are at risk. Many of our services are also available to all British Columbians and our scope of work includes family law, child protection, immigration, and criminal law. 

Our mandate is to:

  • Help people to solve their legal problems and to facilitate access to justice
  • Establish and administer an effective and efficient system for providing legal aid to people in BC
  • Provide advice to the Attorney General about legal aid and access to justice for people in BC

LSS is funded by the provincial government, with additional support from the Law Foundation of BC and the Notary Foundation of BC. We are accountable to the public and remain independent of government.
