What We Don't Do

The clinic DOES NOT provide advice or representation in family law or criminal law matters. For these issues, contact the Legal Aid Ontario Area Office.

Free Legal Services

All services provided by the clinic are free. However, the clinic must sometimes pay others for things required to represent a client; for example, a doctor's reports and court filing fees. Where the client can afford it, we may ask that a client pay the clinic back for these expenses.
