Referred by organizations, we provide legal assistance free of charge or at a reduced fee basis to help disadvantaged individuals in the community:

  • Western Canadian Access to Justice Society
  • Edmonton Centre for Equal Justice

We support charitable and not-for-profit organizations everywhere we have offices, such as grassroots business associations for women and entrepreneurs, health-related organizations, emergency shelters, and social, cultural and athletic associations:

  • Big Sisters
  • Dress for Success
  • Alzheimer Society of Canada
  • Nikkei Place Foundation

We support charities with a focus on developing countries:
