Ontario’s community legal clinics
Community legal clinics provide free legal services to people across Ontario. HALCO’s community is people living with HIV in Ontario. Legal clinics are independent not-for-profit organizations with volunteer Boards of Directors. There are two types of community legal clinics:
- General community legal clinics that provide services to people in the clinic’s local community, and,
- Specialty community legal clinics, like HALCO, that provide services to a particular group of people or in a particular area of law.
The Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) is a specialty community legal clinic. The ISAC website includes a webinar and other information about the announced social assistance changes: http://incomesecurity.org/policy-advocacy/changes-ontario-is-proposing-to-ow-and-odsp/.
