Community Advocacy & Legal Centre (CALC)
We are a non-profit legal clinic. We offer free legal help to people living on a low income in Hastings, Prince Edward, and Lennox & Addington counties and Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, in southeastern Ontario. Please call us if you need help, or reach us by mail or email (see our Contact Us page). CALC staff are seeing clients by appointment in the Belleville office only. An appointment is not needed however if someone needs our help and does not have a phone or internet access. COVID screening and mask wearing are still in effect for all visitors. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time. About Us
