PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

Removing barriers

Access to justice means eliminating barriers to the help people need. When those barriers are related to a person’s disability, PBO is committed to working hard to ensure they are not denied equal participation — at work, school, in the community and in our world-class legal system.

Together with our pro bono advocates, we offer:

  • a toll-free, Ontario-wide advice line accessible to all persons of disability
  • an Education Law Program that addresses the special needs of students
  • five medical legal partnerships for families with hospitalized children
  • employment/long-term disability advice clinics for people whose livelihoods are undermined by illness and disability
