LAO Board reverses decision on West Toronto Community Legal Services

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Legal Aid Ontario’s (LAO’s) Clinic Committee has accepted a joint submission from LAO and West Toronto Community Legal Services (WTCLS) to reverse its 2012 funding decision.

The Committee previously decided not to approve the clinic’s funding application due to financial, governance and human resources management concerns. WTCLS, however, has made significant progress to address the issues behind the Committee’s funding decision.

LAO will continue to support WTCLS’ progress and the sustainability of its improvements.
