Legal Aid Investment Supports Ontario's Vulnerable

Ontario is investing in Ontario's legal aid system to protect our most vulnerable and help to drive significant reforms in our family and criminal courts.

"We are delighted that the government found a way to make a significant investment in legal aid. It will allow us to help poor and lower income families with a comprehensive range of services as well as allowing us to help make Ontario's justice system more effective."
John McCamus, Chair of the Board, Legal Aid Ontario
