The Barreau du Québec

In order to promote access to justice for the greatest number of citizens, the Barreau du Québec encourages them to adopt a legal expense insurance, which allows them to benefit, at minimal cost, from the services of a lawyer.

In 2003, the Barreau du Québec gave the kickoff to his campaign on legal expense insurance:

Nothing has been spared to increase the awareness about this product and stimulate interest of the public.

In 2011, 250,000 Québec families were covered by such insurance, meaning 8 to 10% of the population. It is still too little. That is why the Barreau du Québec is committed to promote this tool to access justice among the population of Québec.
