LAO issues fourth quarter report

Posted: Monday, August 11, 2014

Legal Aid Ontarios (LAOs) fourth quarter (Q4) report for the 2013/14 fiscal year, covering the organizations activities between January and March 2014, is now available.

Among its highlights:

  • a spotlight on the Independent Legal Advice pilot, which launched in February and then rolled-out province-wide in July
  • the total number of people assisted by duty counsel dropped by 1.2 per cent, consistent with the trend of fewer events being heard at courts
  • 79 per cent of LAOs clients received a decision on their legal aid application on the same day they applied for legal aid

LAO produces these reports regularly to provide the public with ongoing updates on LAOs financial position, client services, legal aid certificates and duty counsel services.
