Levelling the Playing Field

Self-represented litigants are the human face of the access to justice crisis. Thanks to PBO’s pioneering programs, more than 18,000 vulnerable clients a year get the help they need to navigate the justice system. Without us, they would have nowhere to turn.

Our self-represented support programs include:

  • services at all levels of court in Ontario and the Supreme Court of Canada
  • three court-based Law Help Ontario centres
  • seven unique courtroom duty counsel programs
  • a toll-free, Ontario-wide advice line
