Welcome to Rise Women's Legal Centre

We are a community legal centre striving to create accessible legal services that are responsive to the unique needs of self-identifying women, particularly those who are victims of violence, abuse and unequal power dynamics.

 

Rise is helping put access to justice within women’s reach.

 

Please note that Rise will be in a transition period from April 17th to May 29th. No clinic appointments are available during this time as we train our next group of student clinicians. However, you may still contact us during our regular office hours, and we are accepting appointment requests.  Learn More

If you have general questions but you have concerns about privacy or that someone is reading your emails, please contact us using the form provided on this page. Messages sent using this form will not show up in your ‘Sent’ outbox, but please provide us with a safe method of contacting you in your message, if you are able to do so.

Please note:

  • We usually have a wait list, except in very limited emergency circumstances. Please also note that, because Rise is a teaching clinic, we have transition periods in between semesters where we are unable to see clients. 
  • Rise is located beside the Broadway-City Hall Skytrain Station on the Canada Line and is on the route for bus numbers 9, 15, 17 and 99.
  • Rise does not have any designated parking, but there is limited metered street parking nearby. If you will be driving, please leave yourself plenty of time to find parking in the neighborhood.

Important: Please do not send any confidential information to us. The solicitor-client privileged relationship does not occur until we have agreed to act for you and have been retained. Only after that relationship has been established will we request confidential details of your matter from you.

Accessibility

Rise aims to be inclusive and accessible for our clients and visitors. Our office is accessible to individuals using wheelchairs and other mobility devices. Our clinic has undergone a voluntary Radical Access Mapping Project (RAMP) audit to evaluate our current accessibility, which has aided us in reviewing and improving access to our space.
