OBA Sees Gains in Calls for Expanded Legal Aid Funding

  • April 06, 2018

Ontario’s Ministry of the Attorney General recently announced an $86 million investment in legal aid services. It includes $7.2M for community legal clinics and student legal aid services societies.

The OBA has long advocated for expanded legal aid funding as a critical means to enhance access to justice for Ontarians (most recently in our pre-budget submission to the Ontario Ministry of Finance). We are very pleased to see this positive step forward and thank our members for their hard work in pursuing these priorities on behalf of Ontarians.
