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 including social assistance. Clinics can also help you to find support and advice by directing you to other community agencies that provide assistance and information.

To find the community legal clinic for your area, you can check the Legal Aid Ontario web site and enter your postal code. You can also find a map and full listing of community legal clinics - general service, specialty community legal clinics, and student legal aid services societies in Ontario on the Your Legal Rights Services Map. For more information, see:

If your Ontario Works (OW) or Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) assistance is refused, reduced, or cut off, you may be able to appeal to the Social Benefits Tribunal (SBT). The SBT is like a court but less formal. It is independent from OW and ODSP and has the power to make a different decision.

Javascript is required to view this map.

211 Ontario is an information and referral hotline that gives help in many languages. Dial 211 for free from any phone in Ontario. They take calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

For general information on finding legal help visit: I need legal help, but have limited income and can't afford a lawyer. What can I do?
