Interlock: the Members Assistance Program

If you would like help on a personal, family or work-related problem, call Interlock.

Each year the Interlock Members Assistance Program provides independent and confidential counselling services to hundreds of BC lawyers and articled lawyers, and to their spouses and dependent family members. The Law Society contracts with the Interlock Employee and Family Assistance Corporation to provide these services at no direct cost to individual lawyers.

Interlock counsellors are experienced and qualified professionals - registered social workers, psychologists and clinical counsellors who must meet ethical standards, including duties of confidentiality. Interlock reports to the Law Society only aggregate statistical information on program use.

Interlock services are available throughout BC. To set up an appointment with a counsellor in your community, call 1-800- 663-9099 or 604 431-8200 in the Lower Mainland.
