LEGAL SERVICES PROGRAM - VOTE 304

The Legal Services Division supports the role of the Attorney General as Chief Law Officer of the Crown by providing the government with expert constitutional and civil legal advice and representation before tribunals and at all levels of court. Timely and high quality legal advice and services are critical to the government's ability to develop and deliver on its core businesses, policies, programs and services.

The Office of Legislative Counsel drafts all provincial bills and regulations in English and French, and provides legal advice on legislative matters to the Legislative Assembly and Cabinet. It also consolidates statutes and regulations.
