We are a non-profit community legal clinic funded by Legal Aid Ontario. We provide access to justice for low or no income Black residents living in Ontario.

- Housing law (tenants or co-op members only – not landlords), such as evictions
- Human Rights, such as providing summary legal advice, representation or referrals if a person has been discriminated against contrary to Ontario or Canadian human rights laws.
- Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), when you apply for ODSP or have problems once you are getting it

- Canada Pension Plan (CPP-Disability or regular CPP)
We also give legal information presentations to community agencies and members of the public.

How We Help
We start with advice for your problem. Some people need more help than advice. Sometimes we will help you by preparing documents (for example, an application to the Landlord and Tenant Board).
And sometimes we can represent you in a court or at a tribunal, such as the Social Benefits Tribunal or the Landlord and Tenant Board.
We start with advice and then consider providing other services for you.
