The Justice Education Society recently launched CourtInformation.ca, a new online presence for its Court Information Program for Immigrants, which provides free information and referrals to new immigrants and refugees who are appearing in court.
The Program’s Court Workers operate at various court locations in the lower mainland and by telephone throughout the province, helping its clients to overcome language barriers to understanding:
- Legal aid
- Court procedures
- Legal documents
- Civil law
- Family law
- Criminal law
The website contains information on Canadian Law, BC Courts, Criminal Law, Family Law, Employment Law, Residential Law, Civil (and Administrative) Law, and Youth Law; the entire site is available in in English, French, Spanish, Punjabi, Chinese, and Vietnamese. The individual legal topic pages also offer links to information on external sites in some of these languages.
