About The FActum

The Factum is a place to talk about the law in British Columbia and how people can navigate the legal system. While we talk a bit about all aspects of the law, we focus mainly on how the legal system affects people who can’t afford a lawyer.

The legal information posted on this site is just that, information. It is not legal advice. If you need more help, use Clicklaw’s HelpMap to find resources in your area, contact a legal aid office or talk to a lawyer.

The law can also change quickly. Posts are legally accurate as of the date we publish them but they may become outdated. We’ll try to keep you updated on changes as best we can.
