Awards We Give

APB sponsors an Annual Appreciation Breakfast where we recognize the contributions of all our volunteer lawyers and supporters for the preceding year.

Each spring, we honour three of our volunteers who provided outstanding service to the public through our programs. We present the Allan Parker QC Award for Representation Service to a volunteer lawyer who went above and beyond as an advocate for their clients in BC's courts or tribunals. We present the David Garner Award for Administrative Service to a volunteer who provided exemplary service in support of our staff and frontline legal service providers. And we present the Dugald Christie Award for Advice Service for the volunteer lawyer who advised the most clients through our Summary Advice Program.



We give this award each year to a volunteer lawyer or law firm demonstrating extraordinary commitment to representing low-income individuals in courts or tribunals.
We give this award each to an office or field volunteer who has demonstrated exemplary passion and dedication in working alongside our staff and other volunteers to administer pro bono services.
We give this award each year to a volunteer lawyer or law firm showing outstanding commitment to serving low-income British Columbians at one of our Summary Advice Program community clinics.
