French language services

Legal Aid Ontario is committed to meeting the needs of French‑speaking clients and ensuring that legal aid services are readily available in French, in keeping with the principle of active offer.

What is an active offer?

An active offer is ensuring French language services are:

  • clearly visible
  • readily available
  • easily accessible
  • publicized
  • of equal or comparable quality to services offered in English

We actively offer our services in French by integrating the specific needs of French‑speaking clients and stakeholders into all areas of our business. This begins with setting priorities and program planning, right through to the actual delivery of our services.

If you have any questions or would like further information about our French language services, please contact us.
