Justice Avenues

What is Justice Avenues?

The Justice Avenues program launched in June 2023. We work to make legal advice and information about family, immigration, and criminal law more accessible to racialized people on Prince Edward Island.

We provide free resources, support, and a safe environment for racialized people to learn about their legal rights and options. We offer:

  • Up to 4 hours of free legal advice from a lawyer.

  • Plain language legal information.

  • Support navigating the justice system.

  • Referrals to community services.

  • Free community legal clinics.

Justice Avenues has been made possible by a four-year funding agreement with Justice Canada.
