The BC Human Rights Clinic is operated by the Community Legal Assistance Society and funded by the BC Ministry of Justice. The Clinic provides free representation to complainants who have cases before the BC Human Rights Tribunal on a province-wide basis. If accepted, you will be assigned an Advocate to assist you through the early stages of your complaint. Advocates will advise you as to the Tribunal process, work with you to develop and prepare required documentation (including on any preliminary applications), deal with deadlines, and represent you at any settlement meetings.
Although most cases settle, should the matter not settle or be dismissed on a preliminary basis, a lawyer will be assigned to work with and represent you through all remaining stages of the proceedings, including with respect to preparation for and attendance at any hearing.
