As announced October 8, 2009, five advisory groups were convened to improve the legal aid system, and give advice to the Attorney General. A MAG initiative, the groups looked at how the province’s $150 million investment can support vulnerable Ontarians, and help drive significant justice reforms.
More information on these groups is available on the Transforming LAO Advisory Group page.
