Pro Bono Law Alberta has been involved in this project since it began in 2008. Our sincere appreciation goes to all the volunteer lawyers who give their time to help women in Calgary move forward with their legal matters. Thanks to the Women’s Centre for continuing to offer this very important program in our community!

Most people know about Black Friday and Cyber Monday … now we celebrate GivingTuesday, November 28, 2017.
It is a global movement for giving and volunteering, taking place each year after Black Friday. The “Opening day of the giving season,” it’s a time when charities, companies and individuals join together and rally for favourite causes. In the same way that retailers take part in Black Friday, the giving community comes together for GivingTuesday.
Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites communities by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
Make a difference today: volunteer, donate, perform an act of kindness, GIVE!
