Information from CLEO: We invite you to join our Community of Practice call on Thursday, March 1, 2018 from 12 noon to 1 p.m. EST. 

Why join the call?

CLEO’s PLE Learning Exchange is hosting a participant-led community of practice for community and legal workers in Ontario. We'll be meeting quarterly by telephone. The goals of this and future calls are: 

  • to share tips, resources, needs, and offers between workers and
  • to build better public legal education and information (PLE) in Ontario.  

What is the next topic?

Chris Veldhoven, LGBTQ Community Program Coordinator with The LGBTQ Parenting Network, will talk about legal information related initiatives in the health promotion work of the Network. They will include organizational and community approaches and challenges as the Network delivers information about the legal process of birth registration and family recognition to and for LGBTQ parents.
