Two British Columbia advocacy groups have launched a constitutional challenge with the Supreme Court of British Columbia in order to obtain more funding for legal aid for women involved in family law cases.
The challenge — Single Mothers’ Alliance, Nicolina Bell and A.B. v. B.C. — was launched last week.
The case pits the non-profit Alliance, which represents single mothers across British Columbia, and two individual complainants, against the provincial government and the Legal Services Society, the non-profit organization responsible for providing legal aid in British Columbia.
