As part of our mission to enhance public knowledge about environmental law in Atlantic Canada, East Coast Environmental Law maintains an Environmental Law Inquiry Service. Through this free service, we endeavour to provide general information about environmental law to members of the public who request our assistance.

As a small non-profit organization, our capacity to respond to environmental law inquiries varies on a case-by-case basis. If an inquiry raises complex or unsettled legal questions that cannot be answered with general legal information, we may not be able to provide a comprehensive response. Likewise, the Environmental Law Inquiry Service is not designed to provide tailored legal advice.

If you have an environmental law inquiry, please use our Inquiry Intake Form

When you fill out your Inquiry Intake Form, please be as detailed as possible, as your completed form will help us to assess whether and in what capacity we may be able to assist you. If for any reason we are unable to assist you, we will endeavour to refer you to an outside lawyer with environmental law experience.

Please bear in mind that by requesting and submitting an Inquiry Intake Form, you are not retaining East Coast Environmental Law or its lawyers as legal counsel.

The information you provide in your Inquiry Intake Form will be kept confidential unless you consent to its release.
