Eligibility for Services

The clinic will assist people who cannot afford legal assistance due to financial hardship AND live within the clinic boundaries.

The clinic provides free legal services to low income people who live within the clinic boundaries.  Our legal services range from legal advice to representation at courts and tribunals within the areas of law we practice.  Before we can provide these services, we must ask potential clients about their income, based on guidelines set by Legal Aid Ontario.  We may not always be able to take every case, even if it is within our mandate, based on staff resources, high caseload and casework selection criteria.
