OUR SERVICES

All services are free to persons who qualify. Clients may be required to pay expenses associated with their case if they are able. The Board of Directors has established priorities for clinic work, especially representation at Courts and Tribunals. We provide some services in the following areas of law:

Canada Pension Plan
Employment Insurance
Immigration
Ontario Disability Support Plan
Ontario Works
Tenants' Rights
Workers' Rights

ELIGIBILITY

To receive our help a person must:

1. Have a low-income
2. Live in Etobicoke South of Eglinton Avenue

If we cannot help you we will try to refer you to someone who can.

COMMUNITY GROUPS

Helping community groups to understand and make use of the law is an important part of our work. We can work with you to try to change the laws and help you to organize into a group which will have a strong voice.

We attend meetings, large and small, to talk about the areas of law in which we work or we will help groups in our area to find experts in other legal areas. Please contact us if you are interested in these services.

WE DO NOT ASSIST PERSONS WITH FAMILY OR CRIMINAL LAW MATTERS. These cases are handled by private lawyers and lawyers working for Legal Aid Ontario. Low-income people may be able to have their lawyer paid for by Legal Aid Ontario. See below under Community Resources for information about Legal Aid Ontario or go to http://www.legalaid.on.ca.
