Joining together for conversation and transformation

West Coast LEAF’s workshops encourage participants to think critically about the law, and support them to understand legal and non-legal options.

Important update: Due to a staff capacity issue, we cannot accept new workshop booking requests until late February 2024. Please feel free to email Alana with requests at, and you will receive a response in late February.

We are currently delivering workshops via Zoom only (or another video conferencing platform, if you prefer). We are happy to facilitate via Zoom for a group that is gathered in person. 

Please contact us at least six weeks before your desired workshop date. 

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.
