Racialized communities strategy

About the strategy

Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) has committed to developing a multi-year, multi-faceted, province-wide racialized

communities strategy that will build upon the services and supports that LAO already has in place.

Work with low-income, racialized communities?

Host a Legal Aid Ontario consultation!

Since 2016, Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) has been meeting with legal aid applicants and clients, lawyers, community legal clinics and other community agencies to talk about issues faced by racialized communities when trying to get the legal services they need.

If your organization would like to cohost a meeting with LAO to help develop our racialized communities strategy, we’d love to hear from you!

If you regularly host an event for your clients or members that you would like LAO to attend as part of your agenda, contact us at rcs@lao.on.ca or select a time and date on our online scheduler.  If you don’t find a date that works, simply email us and tell us what works for you! We’re more than happy to come to you and arrange for an interpreter and bring our promotional materials.

To schedule a consultation, please select your city and choose a date and time that works best for you.

Consultations will be scheduled on a first-come, first serve basis.
