Tariff Authorization Request Process

Streamlining requests for additional coverage on certificates.

Legal Aid Alberta (LAA) streamlined the process of requesting additional hours or tariff items beyond the scope of a certificate as issued. When a Staff or Roster Lawyer require extra hours to conclude the family, youth, or immigration case, our legal teams review the request and determine the appropriate hours required in consultation with the assigned lawyer. 

Guidelines for requesting extra tariff items and special disbursements can be found in the Lawyer Portal and on the Support and Resources (Link to page) page for Roster Lawyers. 

This process is an important part of our due diligence and financial accountability. This work is tied to our strategic priority to strengthen our business structure, processes, and technology.
