Who We Are
Community Legal Information Association of PEI Inc., often called CLIA, is a non-profit registered charity. We provide information, referrals, and support to Islanders on legal issues.
Our goal is to provide Islanders with understandable and useful information about our laws and the justice system.
This work is called public legal education (PLE).
In October 1981, the Co-ordinator of the Justice Resource Service of Prince Edward Island brought together people who were interested in the idea of public legal education. They formed a small working committee to look at ways of instituting a PLE program, and in December 1983 they proposed a community based coordinated approach to PLE in PEI.
An interim Board of Directors was appointed in 1984 and the Community Legal Information Association was established as a non-profit, Part II Company under the PEI Companies Act in January 1985. Our charitable number is 11887 0757 RR 0001.
Since 1985, CLIA has evolved into a respected organization in the community, the province, and the country. Our publications are widely distributed and our staff is involved in many local, regional, and national initiatives.
