  • Protection orders such as Restraining Orders and Emergency Protection Orders
  • Criminal issues such as theft, mischief, fraud, and non-domestic assault

  • Provision of non-government identification and assistance with replacement of lost ID
  • Social benefit issues such as Alberta Works, AISH and Canada Pension Plan benefits
