Legal Aid Alberta is marking its 50th anniversary with a year-long celebration dedicated to honouring our past and energizing for the future.

For 50 years, Legal Aid Alberta has been at the forefront of the fight for equal access to justice. Though the law, society and our organization have changed in many ways over the years, demand for legal aid services has stayed constant. Fifty years after helping our first clients we are still here – legal protectors for Albertans in cities and towns everywhere.

To mark our 50th year, there are plenty of ways for you to get involved:
