Indigenous rights

We use the word ‘Indigenous’ to include all Aboriginal, First Nations, Métis and Inuit people.  Are you an Indigenous person needing help with a legal problem?  We can help.

If we can't help, we will provide referrals to the appropriate agency.

Indigenous people might have legal issues related to discrimination, income issues, housing issues, and job loss. See our Legal Health Awareness Chart.  Contact us for legal help with these issues.

We also recognize that the legal needs of First Nations, Métis and Inuit people are unique. We acknowledge that in many ways the Canadian legal system continues to present barriers to Indigenous people who are seeking justice. For people who want to use Canadian law to achieve their goals, we are committed to serving First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in a spirit of transparency and consultation.
