About ACCESS PRO BONO Society of British Columbia
On April 1, 2010, two of British Columbia's leading pro bono legal service providers, the Western Canada Society to Access Justice and Pro Bono Law of BC, merged operations to form the Access Pro Bono Society of BC.
Access Pro Bono is committed to advancing access to justice in BC by delivering free legal advice, assistance and representation to the most at-risk members of BC communities, including the homeless, victims of domestic abuse, children, the elderly and non-profit organizations who serve low-income communities.
Access Pro Bono also promotes and fosters pro bono engagement by participating in national projects, providing training, education and insurance coverage to pro bono lawyers and assisting law firms with the development of pro bono policies and programs.
