Video: Clicklaw HelpMap Top 5 List

Want to get a flavour in less than 5 minutes for what the Clicklaw HelpMap offers? In this video posted on YouTube, we show you the top 5 things you can do on the HelpMap:

  1. You can search by community in British Columbia for someone who can help with legal problems.
  2. You can locate a result on the map (where we’re integrating with Google Maps).
  3. You can narrow your results down in a few different ways — by topic (e.g., show me only “Family law” services) or by type of help (e.g., show me only services that provide “legal advocacy, advice or representation”).
  4. You can start your search by clicking on a topic and narrow down from there.
  5. You can find services that are provided in languages other than English (by starting with a community in BC and narrowing down by language).

We’d love to hear your feedback on the Clicklaw HelpMap. Please consider taking our 3-minute Clicklaw feedback survey online, posting a comment here on this blog, or contacting us at

  2. For anyone looking for a lawyer in BC, see the Lawyer Lookup service of the Law Society of BC. We were able to connect Valerie to her lawyer’s information.
