Legal Aid Ontario hosts community meeting about legal services for Ontario's Black communities

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

I would like to invite you to a community meeting that Legal Aid Ontario is holding to get input on legal services to the Black community.

We want to hear your views in order to begin the important work of setting up a new, independent, Black-focused and Black-led clinic. We also want to tell you about the services that LAO is currently providing to increase access to justice for members of Ontarios Black community, including through partnerships with the Human Rights Legal support Centre, members of the private bar, and the Test Case Program.

If you are interested in participating in this community meeting, the details are as follows:

  • Date: Wednesday September 27, 2017
  • Time: 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Location: Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge St, Toronto, ON

Legal Aid Ontario will provide TTC tokens for those who would like to attend and would require assistance with transportation costs.

An American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter will be interpreting the presentation for the audience.
