Have a general question about Legal Aid Alberta?

Legal Aid Alberta has a new and improved phone menu. Follow the prompts:

Press 1

If you’re calling from a jail, facility, or hospital, or if you are under the age of 18.

Press 2

If you’ve already applied for Legal Aid and are calling for an update or asking who your lawyer is. 

Press 3

For new applications, early appearance assistance, help with new charges, or to update financial information.

Press 4

For help with your statement or bill from Legal Aid Alberta.

Press 5

If you’re a member of the legal community or a roster lawyer contacting us about a certificate or invoice.

Call wait times can be high. Please note:

  • Listen to the recorded messages to decide if you need to stay on hold. If you have already applied for LAA assistance, you do not need to call us back unless we ask you to. 
  • LAA needs to prioritize callers who are in custody, under the age of 18, or are calling for the early appearance assistance program.
  • If you are not making a new application or calling for early appearance assistance, you will be placed on hold for the next available team member.
