The Women’s Centre of Calgary continues to serve a great number of women in our community. In the first 5 months of this year, the Centre successfully hosted 76 legal advice clinics with a total attendance of 157 women.
Calgary Public Library offers free legal information programs at Central Library and our community libraries across Calgary. All programs are free. Advanced registration is welcomed but not a requirement. Drop-in patrons are always welcomed.
Calgary Public Library acknowledges and values our longstanding partnership with Calgary Legal Guidance, which makes these free programs possible for the community.
