Notice to Members Regarding Wildfires in Nova Scotia

Dear members,

We know that many of you are affected by the wildfires in the province. If your law practice has been impacted in any way, or you have questions, please reach out to the NSBS Legal Services Support team at [email protected] or 902-422-1491 and speak to Jonathan Saumier or Rob McCleave.

We also take this opportunity to remind you that The Nova Scotia Lawyers Assistance Program (NSLAP) is a confidential referral and short-term counselling service for practising members of the legal profession, their staff and families who may have health or personal concerns. Resources are available for a full range of personal, family or life events and issues.

For members who are outside of the affected range but are concerned about the potential risks related to a natural disaster and its impact on their practice, the Society encourages you to review this resource on managing practice interruptions.

Our thoughts are with affected members during this difficult time, and their families. Be kind to yourself and to others.
