Summary: The Legal Aid Survey is an annual survey first conducted in 1983/84. Data are collected through an electronic survey questionnaire that is completed by the 13 provincial and territorial legal aid plans in Canada. The survey provides information on revenues, expenditures, personnel, and caseload statistics associated with the delivery and administration of legal aid in Canada. The Legal Aid Survey is an aggregate survey, meaning that there is no information on individual cases, and data are collected and reported for pre-defined categories.
