If you need help with a civil matter (no family law or criminal law), call us today at 1-855-255-7256.

Pro Bono Ontario is committed to helping Ontarians with their everyday civil legal needs. If you can’t afford a lawyer, call our Free Legal Advice Hotline for up to 30 minutes of free legal advice and assistance. The toll-free number is 1-855-255-7256.

Please note: lawyers on the hotline provide brief services. They do not create an ongoing lawyer-client relationship with you.

  • Employment
  • Housing
  • Consumer issues, such as consumer debt and consumer protection
  • Creating Powers of Attorney
  • Corporate law for charities, non-profits and small businesses

Don’t hesitate to call.  We’re here to help.
