The Legal Services Board of Nunavut (LSB) was incorporated in July 2000, pursuant to section 3(1) of the Legal Services Act, R.S.N.W.T. 1988, c-14.  As the territory’s legal aid plan, LSB is responsible for providing legal services to financially eligible Nunavummiut in the areas of criminal, family and civil law.

LSB is governed by a territorial Board of Directors comprised of a Government of Nunavut representative, a Law Society of Nunavut representative, three regional representatives, and two members-at-large.  The GN Minister of Justice appoints all LSB Board members.  Legal services are provided through three regional clinics, each of whom has a regional board of directors.  Although LSB is publicly funded it is not a government department – it is an arms’ length public agency that is independently run.

LSB’s regional legal aid clinics are located in Cambridge Bay (Kitikmeot Law Centre), Rankin Inlet (Kivalliq Legal Services), and Iqaluit (Maliiganik Tukisiiniakvik).  Each clinic is staffed by a complement of family and criminal lawyers, administrative support, and court workers.  Courtworkers are based both within the clinics and in the communities.

In addition to its staff lawyers, LSB continues to rely on private counsel (non-staff lawyers) to meet the demands of clients, conflicts, the Court, and a growing circuit schedule.
