2. Start your application online here.

3. You must complete it over the telephone within 30 days. An interviewer will help you to complete your application. You will be asked to verbally declare your application is true and that you understand it is an offence to obtain legal aid with false information. Please call 204.985.8511 or toll free 1.866.800.8056 for assistance.

4. Approximately 1-2 weeks after you apply, Legal Aid Manitoba will provide you with a written notice of its decision. The notice will explain why your application has been approved or rejected. It will also explain what happens next in the process. Please note that due to COVID-19 the application processing time may be delayed.
