In consultation with the Ministry of Justice and Solicitor General, Legal Aid Alberta has been asked to play a significant role in the review and update of our tariff – something that has not been done in many years.
Though the tariff rate is the responsibility of the Ministry and will continue to be, an updated tariff means modernization and simplicity. It means you can focus on representing disadvantaged Albertans instead of overcoming administrative hurdles.
Starting immediately, LAA has started its tariff review planning process. We want to make our staff’s and roster lawyers’ lives easier, and with that in mind, our new tariff will:
Nov. 4, 2022 – Modernized LAA tariff proposal sent to Ministry of Justice
Oct. 11, 2022 – Registration open for Tariff Modernization Information Sessions
July 13, 2022 – Tariff modernization update
May 13, 2022 – Next steps: Tariff Consultation Committees
