As part of our mission to enhance public knowledge about environmental law in Atlantic Canada, East Coast Environmental Law maintains a free Environmental Law Inquiry Service. Through this service, we aim to provide general information about environmental law to members of the public who request our assistance.
As an environmental law charity, our capacity to respond to inquiries is limited, and this service is not designed to provide tailored legal advice.
By submitting an Inquiry Intake Form, you are not creating a lawyer-client relationship or retaining East Coast Environmental Law as your legal counsel. We are not responsible for any deadlines or limitation periods that may be associated with your legal issue: the responsibility to meet such deadlines or limitation periods is yours alone.
Describing your issue in detail will help us to determine whether, and in what capacity, we may be able to assist you. We will not disclose the information you provide unless you consent to its release, but you should not provide confidential or otherwise sensitive personal information through our online form.
If you have an environmental law inquiry, please use our Inquiry Intake Form.
Funding from the Nova Scotia Law Foundation supports our capacity to provide general legal information to individuals and community groups throughout Nova Scotia.
