Impact of Cuts to Legal Aid - Please Complete Our Survey
Legal Aid Ontario’s funding has been cut by 30% by the Ministry of the Attorney General with more cuts planned in April 2020. They are also reviewing services funded by Legal Aid, including help given by non-profit community-based legal clinics. We need your views on the impact of the cuts and how legal help might be improved to fill justice gaps and be more responsive, holistic and client-centered. We will share results at a community forum in Belleville on November 26, 2019, which you are welcome to attend.
Take the Survey
Completing this survey will take about 10–15 minutes. Please complete by November 20.
