FREE Telephone Help Line + Guides

• Pre-recorded Answers,   24 hrs / day

• Live Help,   Monday to Friday / 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

For those who prefer to ‘listen’ to the legal answers, all of the information on this website is also available on our pre-recorded, 24 hour telephone information line.

Callers have unlimited access to as many of the 1,000 topics as they wish, during the same call. Callers may also skip from topic to topic, or repeat a topic. In order to use our telephone service, callers may use a Legal Line Guide listing our ‘ topic extension’ numbers, or just simply use the topic numbers listed on this website.


Connect to ‘Live’ Help

After listening to a specific answer, callers who wish to speak with an expert, in that specific legal issue, can do so during the same telephone call. The caller simply presses ‘0’ and the call is transferred to a lawyer, other professional, or a government office (Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.).

FREE Guides to Access our Telephone Service

Individuals can obtain free Guides from any of our 8,000 participating provincial and federal offices, and community organizations, which act as our public distribution centres. New distribution locations are always welcome. Please submit a request and your organization will be added.

Guides are large poster size, and are folded to fit into standard brochure racks, 10 cm x 21cm (4″ x 8″). Guides unfold like a map to 1m x 0.6 m (3′ x 2′).


The front of the Guide lists 1,000 legal topics and their corresponding extension numbers, while the back of the Guides is a directory of government and professional resources.


When unfolded, Guides may be pinned up on a wall for public use. The Legal Line website is prominently displayed so that users can easily access free legal answers and resources.


For those without internet access, or for those who prefer to ‘listen’ rather than read the legal answers (such as those with disabilities or those who can’t read), Guides can be used to access the free telephone service.
