FAMILY DUTY COUNSEL

Courtenay Courthouse
100 – 420 Cumberland Road, Courtenay, V9N 2C4
Website: www.familylaw.lss.bc.ca
Hours: Wednesday 9:00am – noon

Family duty counsel can help you with Provincial Court family law matters, including child protection issues (if the Ministry of Children and Family Development becomes involved with your family).  Duty counsel can give you advice and speak on your behalf in court on simple matters.  However, they will not take on your whole case and will not represent you at a trial.  People are helped on a first come, first served basis.  Note that the lawyers must first help people who have matters in court that day, but can assist others once they are not needed in court.

The Report All Poachers and Polluters (RAPP) program is a toll free tip-line and web-based service that allows you to report known or suspected violations of fisheries, wildlife, or environmental protection laws – anonymously and without risk of confronting the offender.

Available 24/7, RAPP is simple, safe and effective. It is based on the principle that someone other than the criminal has information that can solve the crime. Just like the police use Crimestoppers, the B.C. Conservation Officer Service needs your help in catching poachers and polluters.

The RAPP hotline should also be used to report wildlife-human interactions where public safety may be at risk.
