On July 1, 2011, LSS began funding the writing of Gladue reports as an expert report disbursement pilot. This pilot project has been extended.
Lawyers can request a Gladue report by submitting a Request for Authorization of Disbursements to the Case Management Section. Reports will be funded for sentencing, bail, and appeals. The case must meet set criteria and budget must be available.
Funding for Gladue reports for Legal Aid clients is available on a limited basis. Please submit a request through LSS Online.

Major funding for this pilot project provided by a grant from the Law Foundation of British Columbia.
