Support Organizations Resource launched

To better serve clients and Albertans across the province, Legal Aid Alberta has launched a new and improved support organizations section of its website.

Legal Aid Alberta provides legal support to thousands of Albertans annually, and there are times when clients are in need of social or other legal supports to assist them in improving their overall circumstances.

The new resource, Support Services for Albertans, is a comprehensive, but not exhaustive, list of organizations across the province that provide a multitude of services that compliment the support Legal Aid Alberta is able to provide.

The resource mainly focuses on organizations offering legal supports to residents, but also provides information about organizations that provide social supports for some of the most vulnerable members of our communities. This includes, but is not limited to, women in abusive relationships, Indigenous Albertans, youth, and the homeless.

If a resident does not meet Legal Aid Alberta’s eligibility requirements, the Support Services for Albertans resource has other organizations that an provide legal support and advice to help with a variety of legal issues.

Broken into three regions – Northern, Central (includes Edmonton and Red Deer), and Southern (includes Calgary) Alberta – the resource provides a listing of support organizations, a brief description of the services offered, contact information and a link to the organization’s website (if available).

If your organization is not listed, please contact communications@legalaid.ab.ca to have it included in the listings.
