The Centre for Public Legal Education Alberta (CPLEA) has been educating Albertans on the law since 1975. Through its many websites, print resources and workshops, CPLEA provides understandable information to Albertans about the laws that affect their lives.
CPLEA recently published new and updated resources, just in time to share for Access to Justice Week! This week we are showcasing the following resources:
1. Landlord and tenant resources: Fresh off the press, we have updated and redesigned our landlord and tenant resources with a new look. We also released two new housing law publications: “Hoarding and Tenancy Situations” and “Tenancy Dispute Resolution Options”. All of these resources and more are available on our Landlord and Tenant website.
2. Planning for the future resources: Has someone close to you passed away and left you in charge of their estate? Unsure of what ‘probate’ is and how to get it? We recently produced a new resource “Getting a Grant of Probate or Administration in Alberta”. We’ve also updated and redesigned some publications in our planning for the future series: “Making a Will”, “Making an Enduring Power of Attorney”, “Making a Personal Directive” and “Being an Agent”. And even more updates are coming soon!
3. Employment resources: Wondering what to do if you’ve lost your job? Or what your rights at work are? CPLEA has several resources, including:
4. LawNow: CPLEA publishes an online magazine six times per year. LawNow helps Canadians understand how the law affects their lives. To read our latest issue, go to the LawNow website. (P.S. We are also excited to debut a fresh new look with our latest issue!)
You can access all of our resources on our website. You can also order print copies from our store.
