volunteer

Our vision is to leverage the skills of volunteer lawyers to address the legal problems that interfere with low-income Ontarians’ ability to lead secure, healthy, and productive lives.

Our mission is to bridge the gap between lawyers who want to donate their services, and low-income Ontarians whose legal problems aren’t covered by government agencies (e.g. Legal Aid, Children’s Lawyer and PGT). We implement this mission by:

  • Developing and directly managing pro bono programs that address unmet legal needs.
  • Providing strategic consulting services and tailored technical assistance to third parties engaged in the provision of organized pro bono projects.
  • Promoting the private bar’s role in the overall delivery of legal services in Ontario.
