Welcome to Pro Bono Canada

Pro Bono Canada (PBC) was created to encourage and support the development of province-wide pro bono programs that bridge the gap between the less fortunate with unmet legal needs, and lawyers who wish to volunteer their services. PBC is dedicated to increasing awareness of pro bono activities and encouraging the expansion of pro bono legal services across the country.


Pro Bono Canada supports pro bono programs that deliver free legal services annually to more than 36,000 low- income Canadians who have nowhere else to turn. These programs assist self-represented litigants, vulnerable children, survivors of domestic abuse and victims of fraud and elder abuse.
