Community Advocate Support Line

The Community Advocate Support Line (CASL) is a dedicated telephone support line designed only to help advocates and community workers in BC.

Our lawyer gives brief legal information and legal advice about family law and poverty law issues to support advocates' work on behalf of their clients. Help is offered primarily for matters involving welfare, residential tenancy and housing issues (including foreclosure), family law, employment insurance, the Canada Pension Plan (including disability benefits), debt issue and bankruptcy, consumer contracts and judicial reviews.

Advocates and community workers needing more information from CASL, please call us at 604 685 3425 to see if you are eligible for this service.


Please note: 

This program only provides assistance to advocates and community workers.  If you have a legal issue you need assistance with, and you are not an advocate or community worker, please visit to get the information you need.
