LEGAL INFORMATION

ECOL is proud to partner with Éducaloi, an organization whose mandate is to provide access to legal information in plain language. 

 

Do you want to write your will? Designate a power of attorney? Cannabis is now legal but can your landlord prevent you from using it in your apartment? Are you thinking of leaving your partner but are not sure about child custody? These are situations that can have a significant impact on your present and future life. Having the right information can help you navigate through such life experiences more easily.     

Law Professional Directories

If you need to hire a law professional, ECOL has directories for lawyers and notaries in Lanaudière who can offer services in English. Please let us know if you used one of our directories and if you were satisfied with the quality of the services offered!
