our people

Our team of people come from a variety of backgrounds and display a diverse skill set and expertise: lawyers, social workers, counsellors, advocates, caseworkers, customer relations, and volunteers. One element our entire NSCLC team have in common, is the belief in Social Justice – the right that all people should have equal access to wealth, health, well-being, justice and opportunity.
