Le mandat de la Commission de l’aide juridique de la Nouvelle-Écosse est de fournir une représentation de qualité aux demandeurs admissibles dans des causes de liberté individuelle et de droits civils des personnes et des causes liées à l’intégrité et à la protection des enfants et des familles.
Access to Legal Aid ensures that all Nova Scotians have their rights and freedoms protected and get a fair hearing in a court of law. Without Legal Aid lawyers, many people and their children would be faced with important legal issues without representation or legal help. This includes important matters like child custody, as well as criminal law, youth law and more.
