Community Legal Assistance Society

Since our incorporation in 1971, CLAS has provided legal assistance to disadvantaged people throughout British Columbia. We specialize in the areas of poverty, disability, workers’ compensation, employment insurance, mental health, human rights and equality law.

Our activities include test case and Charter litigation; service case work and law reform; liaison and consultation with community groups; legal supervision of advocacy groups and law students; publication of legal materials designed to assist self-represented litigants; and legal training and support to lay advocates, community groups, law students, and lawyers doing pro-bono work.
