LAO has committed to developing a multi-year, multi-faceted, province-wide racialized communities strategy that will build upon the services and supports that LAO already has in place. This strategy will enable LAO to:

  • better identify and prioritize the complex intersecting needs of racialized clients and ensure they can access a range of both legal and social services.
  • expand access to legal services.
  • develop policies, protocols and processes to reflect a better understanding of how being racialized impacts a client’s experience in the legal system.
  • provide more supports to service providers.
  • create a sustainable plan to ensure LAO staff are knowledgeable and educated in the experiences of racialized communities and how it impacts clients, and provide up-to-date resources to assist in their work.
