Racialized Communities Strategy final paper and Racialized Communities Action Plan

The final paper of the Legal Aid Ontario’s Racialized Communities Strategy is now available. The paper was the result of a three year consultation with clients, staff, stakeholders and communities in Ontario about the experience of racialized people in the justice system and LAO’s role within it.

Along with the final paper of the Racialized Communities Strategy is the Racialized Communities Action Plan, a 10‑year plan that commits LAO to 17 specific objectives in its work with racialized communities.
