People who don't speak English or French and people who live in rural or remote communities face significant barriers to accessing the legal information and services they need. CLEO's Connecting Communities addresses these barriers and promotes greater access to legal information and services through its work.

The Connecting Communities staff team helps organizations develop legal information training projects for front-line workers in their community. We do this by helping organizations plan their project, find project partners, and prepare proposals, which are then submitted to the Law Foundation of Ontario.

Connecting Communities also collects legal information training resources developed through Connecting projects and makes them available to community workers who are planning or conducting legal information training through our training materials database.

To date, 31 Connecting projects have been funded from across the province – and we look forward to seeing many more innovative projects that meet identified community needs funded over the coming years
