Community Legal Information Forums

Our goal is to increase access to legal information for all communities in BC and empower librarians to provide legal information, reference, and referrals.

We aim to build community capacity through partnerships which we continue to explore with libraries and other orgnaizations. We encourage and consult with public libraries to host half-day community legal information forums to connect with local organizations that work with the public to help them find legal information.

The purpose of a forum is to create an opportunity for local community groups to meet and share their knowledge and ideas about legal information services in their community.
