The Kettle Advocacy provides much needed information, support and representation to resolve income, housing and family law problems. Our Advocates also help to resolve debt, welfare, tenancy and child and family disputes. The office is open 9:30 am to noon and 1:00 pm to 4:15 pm, Monday to Friday.
The staff work with our members, government agencies and other service providers to ensure that persons with a mental illness have access to housing, financial supports, legal and mental health resources, and are treated fairly in their interactions with government, community and the mental health system.
Pro Bono Legal Clinic: With the support of the Kettle Advocacy Service, the Western Canada Society to Access Justice runs a free legal clinic every Thursday afternoon from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The clinic is staffed by volunteer lawyers who can give advice, look at and review legal documents and answer questions about civil law matters. Civil law matters can include wills and estates, personal injury claims, small claims court, contract problems and other disputes. The clinic is by appointment only. The clinic is open to anyone as long as they are low income and cannot obtain legal aid. For an appointment, call 604-253-0669 and ask for the Pro Bono Legal Clinic Coordinator.
Every March, the Kettle also offer free Tax Clinics. For more information, contact Kris Sutherland.
