Pivot’s mandate is to use the law to achieve widespread social change. Our lawyers work with low-income communities to develop strategies to address systemic problems affecting large numbers of people. We focus on bringing forward cases that will make a lasting difference in the lives of people living in poverty. Unfortunately, legal aid has been gutted in BC. For most legal issues, the service providers below will offer summary advice only, or no free assistance at all. There is very little legal help available, and free legal representation is extremely rare.
