As of April 1, 2010, the Western Canada Society to Access Justice and Pro Bono Law of British Columbia have merged, and will now be known as the Access Pro Bono Law Society of British Columbia (Access Pro Bono).
“Access Pro Bono’s mission is to promote access to justice in British Columbia by providing and fostering quality pro bono legal services for people and non-profit organizations of limited means.”
The two merging organizations have a long history of helping people and organizations with limited means in BC. Access Justice was formed in 1990, and Pro Bono Law in 2002 (under the name Public Legal Access Society). Access Pro Bono’s new website is currently under construction, but will exist at www.accessprobono.ca.
