Empowering Immigrants

Life in a new country can be overwhelming, frightening and fraught with legal issues, but many Ontario newcomers have no idea where to turn or how to navigate a complex system with a language and a culture not their own. PBO provides a continuum of legal services to help Ontario immigrants of all ages
create opportunities to make connections, escape poverty and build a better future for themselves and their families.

PBO programs aimed at helping newcomers achieve success and growth, include:

  • Connect Legal to support entrepreneurship in the immigrant community
  • a Corporate Pro Bono Summary Advice Clinic
  • an Unaccompanied Minors Project to guide lone children through Canada’s refugee claims process
