Justice Pro Bono’s mission is to improve access to justice by mobilizing the legal community to share their expertise and time to individuals, communities and NPOs in Quebec who lack the resources to access legal services.
To remain the key organization in the field of volunteer legal work through the implementation of concrete projects that meet the needs of people in vulnerable situations.
Created in 2008 at the initiative of the Quebec Bar, Justice Pro Bono has become a key player in improving access to justice in Quebec. Over the past 15 years, Justice Pro Bono has set up innovative and multidisciplinary projects across Quebec to meet the legal needs of the population.
Today, a network of more than 5,000 volunteer lawyers enables the organization to achieve its mission by offering legal services through the following flagship programs
– Medico-legal partnership in hospitals;
– Mobile volunteer legal clinics in Nunavik;
– Porte 33, psychosocial legal clinics in family law;
– Ad hoc legal clinics;
– Matching of citizens’ files with volunteer lawyers.
Justice Pro Bono is supported in its mission by the Chambre des notaires du Québec, the Barreau du Québec, the Barreau de Montréal, SOQUIJ, Justice Canada, Justice Québec and many other dedicated partners.
