Nunavut Lawyers' Assistance Program for Nunavut - NuLAP
Up until now NuLap's support was offered through the Ontario Lawyer Asssistance Program - OLAP which was jointly funded by the Law Society of Upper Canada and the Ontario insurer. However, LSUC recently decided to bring the program in-house.
In order to insure continous coverage for Nunavut-resident lawyers, NuLAP has now engaged the services of the Alberta's Lawyers Asistance Society - ASSIST.
Effective January 1, 2013 counseling and peer support services will be provided by ASSIST which can be contacted at
1-877-498-6898 or www.albertalawyersassist.ca.
