Authorized Lawyers, Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers, Key Legal Virtual Law Platform
Authorized Lawyers All Lawyers providing Legal Services or Informational Services, as defined below, (each an “Authorized Lawyer”) are independent, regulated legal professionals registered to practice law in a Province or Territory of Canada. Key Legal is not a legal services provider or law firm. Authorized Lawyers alone are responsible for the Legal Services and Informational Services they provide through the Key Legal Platform.
To the extent permitted by the law in the Province or Territory in which you reside, Authorized Lawyers may be located in your Province or Territory or another Province or Territory of Canada. If you want information about any particular Authorized Lawyer, consult his or her profile on the register on the website of the legal regulator (in most Provinces, the “Law Society” of the Province), in the Province or Territory in which the Lawyer Practices.
Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers All non-Lawyer providers providing Legal Services or Informational Services, as defined below, (each an “Authorized Non-Lawyer Provider”) are independent, regulated legal professionals (such as paralegals or immigration consultants) registered to provide services in a Province or Territory of Canada. Key Legal is not a legal services provider. Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers alone are responsible for the Legal Services and Informational Services they provide through the Key Legal Platform.
To the extent permitted by the law in the Province or Territory in which you reside, Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers may be located in your Province or Territory or another Province or Territory of Canada. If you want information about any particular Authorized Non-Lawyer Provider, consult his or her profile on the register on the website of the regulator (in most Provinces, the “Law Society” of the Province, ICCRC-CRCIC, or named a “College”), in the Province or Territory in which the Non-Lawyer Provider Practices.
Services Authorized Lawyers and Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers may provide two kinds of services through the Key Legal Platform: legal services (“Legal Services”) and/or general information about the law and its use and applicability in Canada (“Informational Services”).
Virtual Law is the delivery of legal and other services using interactive text, audio and video technology, where the client and the Lawyer are not in the same physical location. During your Virtual Law consultation with an Authorized Lawyer or a Non-Lawyer Provider, you will be asked to provide the Authorized Lawyer or Non-Lawyer Provider certain Personal Information including Personal Legal Information (collectively referred to together as “Information”). When discussing Legal Services, information typically refers to Personal Legal Information (“PLI”), and when discussing Informational Services, Information typically refers to information that is not specifically about you, such as information in questions you would be comfortable asking of an expert during the call-in portion of a radio broadcast on legal-related matters. PLI is not required for Informational services, and we advise you to not to submit PLI in the course of accessing Informational Services.
The type of services that are available to you through the Key Legal Platform depends on your province of residence and the location you are in at the time you request the services. This is because Virtual Law is regulated by the Provinces and Territories and the rules differ or may differ from time to time, among the Provinces and Territories.
- Legal Services, Limits on Legal Services
Legal Services will only be made available to you if you are a temporary or permanent resident of a Canadian Province or Territory, whether or not physically in the Province or Territory at the time that you request the Legal Services (“Residency Requirements”). The relationship between you and an Authorized Lawyer providing Legal Services is a solicitor-client relationship. Key Legal is not a party to that relationship. The relationship between you and an Authorized Non-Lawyer Provider providing Legal Services is a provider-client relationship. Key Legal is not a party to that relationship.
There are restrictions on the Legal Services that can be provided through the Key Legal Platform. Authorized Lawyers and Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers have the discretion to refuse or discontinue the provision of Legal Services to any User at any time, including for actual or potential misuse of the Legal Services by a User.
Not a Replacement for a full legal services retainer. Please note that interaction with an Authorized Lawyer through the Key Legal Platform is not intended to take the place of a full legal services retainer. This is for summary information only. You are solely responsible for determining whether or not an established full services retainer is needed and we encourage you to seek the appropriate full-service lawyer if your needs require it.
- Informational Services. Limits on Informational Services
Informational Services are available to you whether or not you meet the Residency Requirements. Informational Services are for general educational purposes only (similar to advice that might be provided by a 3rd party expert on a phone in radio show), and are not Legal Services. The information provided will be law specific rather than client specific and will not include a legal opinion. Key Legal is not a party to your relationship with an Authorized Lawyer or an Authorized Non-Lawyer Provider providing Informational Services. Informational Services do not replace consultations with qualified relevant legal services professionals. You agree that you bear all risk associated with the use of or reliance on Informational Services, and release and hold Key Legal, Authorized Lawyers, and Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers providing Informational Services harmless from and against any claim, demand, action, cause of action, damage, loss, cost, liability or expense, including reasonable legal fees, which may be made or brought against or incurred or suffered by Key Legal or an Authorized Lawyer, or an Authorized Non-Lawyer Provider directly or indirectly as a result of, in respect of, or arising out of your reliance on Informational Services. Authorized Lawyers and Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers have the discretion to refuse or discontinue the provision of some or all Informational Services to any User at any time, including for actual or potential misuse of the Informational Services by a User and where the information being requested is not general information but in the nature of a legal opinion.
By authorizing someone else (a “Third Party”) to pay the fees for your Legal Services or Informational Services, as described in the section on Payment below and to the extent permitted under the section on Third Party Payment below, you are representing to Key Legal, and Key Legal will rely on your representation, that:
a. you consent to us using the email address provided to us by the Third Party to communicate with you regarding the Key Legal Platform and Legal Services and/or Informational Services;
b. disclosing the information that you have requested Legal Services to the Third Party to permit Key Legal to process payment for the Legal Services and/or Informational Services; and
c. notifying the Third Party of any changes or termination of your access to the Key Legal Platform.
By using the Services, you acknowledge the potential risks associated with virtual services. These include but are not limited to the following: although the electronic systems we use incorporate network and software security protocols to protect the privacy and security of your information, those protocols could fail causing a breach of privacy of your information.

To be a legal services provider (including Authorized Lawyers, Authorized Non-Lawyer Providers) using the Site (“Provider” or “you”) you must be a licensed Lawyer, paralegal, or immigration consultant, and must agree to comply with all laws, regulatory rules and other rules and regulations applicable to you as a Provider or otherwise. Your relationship with the Key Legal users is directly between you and the client. The client will never have a Lawyer-client relationship with Key Legal. Key Legal does not practice law and offers no services. As set forth more fully below, Provider is solely responsible for all agreements, consents, notices and other interactions with clients and other consumers. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Key Legal shall have no liability whatsoever to Provider with respect to any amounts owed by any client or other consumer to Provider. Key Legal does not provide any advice, legal advice, or representations in any way regarding any legal or other issues associated with Provider, goods or services offered by Provider, including but not limited any compliance obligations or steps necessary to comply with any provincial or federal laws and regulations. Provider should seek legal counsel regarding any legal and compliance issues, and should not rely on any materials or content associated with the Services in determining Provider’s compliance obligations under law. Provider and Key Legal agree that Key Legal is not providing, to Customer or anyone else, advice or legal advice. Provider will use the Site and Services only in accordance with applicable standards of good practice. While software products such as the Site and Services can facilitate and improve the quality of service that Provider can offer clients, many factors, including the provider/client relationship can affect a client outcome, and with intricate and interdependent technologies and complex decision-making it is often difficult or impossible to accurately determine what the factors were and in what proportion they affected an outcome. Provider shall be solely responsible for its use of the Site and Services, and the provision of services to Provider’s clients. In this regard, Provider releases Key Legal and waives any and all potential claims against Key Legal as a result of Provider’s use of the Site and Services, and the provision of services to Provider’s clients. As a result of the complexities and uncertainties inherent in the client care process, Provider agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Key Legal harmless from any claim by or on behalf of any client of Provider, or by or on behalf of any other third party or person claiming damage by virtue of a familial or financial relationship with such a client, which is brought against Key Legal, regardless of the cause if such claim arises for any reason whatsoever, out of Provider’s use or operation of the Site and Services. To the extent applicable, Provider will obtain Key Legal’s prior written consent to any settlement or judgment in which Provider agrees to any finding of fault of Key Legal or defect in the Site or Services. Key Legal will promptly notify Provider in writing of any claim subject to this indemnification, promptly provide Provider with the information reasonably required for the defense of the same, and grant to Provider exclusive control over its defense and settlement. If you submit, upload, transmit, or post any consents, notices, advice, recommendations, comments, files, videos, images or other materials to us or our Site (“Provider Content”) or provide any Provider Content to clients or other consumers, you agree not to provide any Provider Content that (1) is defamatory, abusive, libelous, unlawful, obscene, threatening, harassing, fraudulent, pornographic, or harmful, or that could encourage criminal or unethical behavior, (2) violates or infringes the privacy, copyright, trademark, trade dress, trade secrets or intellectual property rights of any person or entity, or (3) contains or transmits a virus or any other harmful component. Provider is solely responsible for obtaining all necessary agreements and consents from, and providing all required notices to, clients and other consumers. You agree not to contact other users through unsolicited e-mail, telephone calls, mailings or any other method of communication. You represent and warrant to Key Legal that you have the legal right and authorization to upload all Provider Content at the Site. Key Legal shall have a royalty-free, irrevocable, transferable right and license to use the Provider Content however Key Legal desires, including without limitation, to copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and/or sell and/or distribute such Provider Content and/or incorporate such Provider Content into any form, medium or technology throughout the world. Key Legal is and shall be under no obligation (1) to maintain any Provider Content in confidence; (2) to pay to you any compensation for any Provider Content; or (3) to respond to any Provider Content. Key Legal does not regularly review Provider Content, but does reserve the right (but not the obligation) to monitor and edit or remove any Provider Content submitted to the Site. You grant Key Legal the right to use the name that you submit in connection with any Provider Content. You agree not to use a false email address, impersonate any person or entity, or otherwise mislead as to the origin of any Provider Content. You are and shall remain solely responsible for the content of any Provider Content you post to the Site or provide to clients or other consumers.
