Accessing Free Legal Support
If you need a lawyer to protect your interests in court, you can hire one for a fee. You may also be able to access free legal services, called legal aid. Legal Aid Ontario provides legal assistance for people with low-income.
Whether you qualify for legal aid will depend on your family responsibilities and what you must pay every month to live. Legal aid staff will decide if you qualify after they have looked at your financial situation.
Legal Aid Ontario gives low-income people access to a range of legal services tailored to their legal needs. To find a lawyer, you can browse the Directory of Certified Specialists from the Law Society of Upper Canada.
