Giving Kids a Chance

At PBO, we believe Ontario’s children deserve the chance to grow up with a quality education, in good health and in loving households. When children and youth face life’s toughest challenges, our programs are there to address the legal problems that can undermine their chances of success.

Together with our pro bono advocates, we offer:

  • an Education Law Program to protect children’s rights to an appropriate public education
  • Medical-Legal Partnerships in five children’s hospitals to address health-harming legal problems
  • a Youth Adoptions Project to promote family formation
  • an Unaccompanied Minors Project to guide lone children through Canada’s refugee claims process
