Public Legal Education and Information in Canada
In every province in Canada, organizations have been set up to provide essential legal information to members of the public. These non-profit and non-governmental groups believe that Canadians cannot fully exercise their rights unless they know about and understand the laws and the justice system that affects them. Providing easy access to information on the law is fundamental to a fair justice system.
Therefore, these organizations set out to educate and inform the people of Canada about the law and the legal system. The Canadian Bar Association fully supports these organizations and the contribution they make.
Please note that these organizations do not provide legal advice or assistance. Their goal is only to inform and educate Canadians about the law and the legal system.
