Ontario's Community Legal Clinics are funded by Legal Aid Ontario to provide legal services for low-income individuals and families in a variety of areas of law. Clinics can also help you to find support and advice by directing you to other community agencies or lawyers in your area that provide assistance and information.

Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) helps low-income individuals and disadvantaged communities get legal assistance through a broad range of services, including legal help for low-income people who appear in court without a lawyer, telephone and online assistance, resources, referrals, and assistance in retaining a lawyer if applicants meet eligibility requirements. LAO provides help in certain areas of law, such as criminal, family, and immigration and refugee.

If you have experienced family violence and need immediate legal help, you might be able to get 2 hours of free advice from a lawyer. This service is offered through some women's shelters, community legal clinics, and Family Law Service Centres. Or you can call Legal Aid Ontario toll-free at 1-800-668-8258 to find out more.

If you have experienced sexual abuse and live in Toronto, Ottawa, or Thunder Bay, you might be able to get 4 hours of free advice from a lawyer. You have to complete a voucher request form. Or you can call the Independent Legal Advice for Sexual Assault Survivors Pilot Programat 1-855-226-3904 to find out more.

The Law Society of Upper Canada has information on its web site to help you find legal assistance. Visit the Law Society's online Lawyer and Paralegal Directory or call the Law Society Referral Service (LSRS) to get the name of a lawyer.

JusticeNet is a not-for-profit service helping people in need of legal expertise, whose income is too high to access legal aid and too low to afford standard legal fees. JusticeNet is currently available to anyone living in Ontario.
