Tariff Modernization


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:

  • Increase efficiencies to protect your time.
  • Simplify the way you invoice.
  • Provide lawyers with the proper recognition based on the complexity of their work.
