Legal Aid Strips Our Community Legal Clinic's Funding

Legal Aid Ontario has de-funded our community legal clinic, creating a real risk that the junction triangle and its surrounding community will be the only area in Ontario without such a clinic.

West Toronto Community Legal Services provides free legal advice and representation to low-income members of our community. Its staff empowers members of our community as they navigate complex legal issues regarding housing rights, income security, and mental health.

The consequences of closing the clinic are tangible. Our community will not have a space where we can learn about our legal rights, without charge. We will not have lawyers who understand our community to assist our friends in securing income to feed their families and buy boots for their children. Our neighbours will not have legal support to bring their rental housing out of disrepair and protect themselves from unlawful eviction.
