There are 11 Community Legal Clinics in the Northern Region of Ontario, funded by Legal Aid Ontario. Individually they deliver legal services to individuals living in low income throughout the North in a diverse range of areas including tenant rights, Ontario Works, WSIB, ODSP, CPP, CPPD, EI, employment rights, human rights, Aboriginal Issues , Criminal Injuries Compensation Board, Small Claims Court, CRA, HST, CTB, consumer advocacy, wrongful dismissal (limited to Employment Standards Act), Powers of Attorney, Healthcare Consent & Capacity, worker’s compensation, immigration, wills and estates, provincial offences, assistance with incorporation and non profit development, income tax and identification clinics and healthcare access. Their mandate includes public legal and rights education, community development and poverty law reform.
These clinics have been working to find additional ways to work collaboratively with each other, and improve services and support to their clients and communities. In January of 2014, these clinics applied to Legal Aid Ontario for funds to work on a Northern Region Transformation Project. Legal Aid Ontario is funding this project, along with other community legal clinic projects around the Province, to enhance the provision of community legal clinic services, and find administrative savings that can be re-invested into service delivery.
