We are happy to inform residents of Port Alberni and surrounding areas that free legal consultations (for those who have been sexually assaulted) are now available in person in the Alberni Valley through the Stand Informed Program. Sage Haven Society has worked with this program previously and is happy to share information with our members and visitors.
In a safe and supportive environment, the program can offer up to 3 hours of free and confidential legal advice to anyone in British Columbia who has been sexually assaulted. The choice to file a police report is up to you, you are not required to report your assault to the police to access this service.
Referrals are not required. To apply for the program, you simply need to visit their website, complete their online application, or contact them directly by phone toll-free at 1-888-685-6222 or by email at email@example.com.Feel free to reach out to the program if you have questions about eligibility. They will be happy to assist you.
