An organization that promotes access to justice

Centre communautaire juridique de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue

The Centre communautaire juridique de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue’s (CCJAT) mission is to enable persons who are financially eligible to have access to legal services in the region, which includes the Amos, Chibougamau, La Sarre, Rouyn‑Noranda, Val‑d’Or and Ville‑Marie areas, as well as the Nord‑du‑Québec Region. The CCJAT has eight permanent legal aid offices, and its lawyers join in the activities organized by the itinerant court, which sits in the James Bay, Hudson Bay, and Ungava Bay Aboriginal communities.

Applying for legal aid

To have access to legal aid services, you must apply in a legal aid office near you. Please note that eligibility verification can only be done in person. It cannot be done by phone* nor online.

* With the exception of Kuujjuaq, there is no permanent legal aid office in the North. Therefore, under certain circumstances, information considered vital for the processing of the legal aid application may be collected through telephone.
