Cuts to Legal Aid Day of Action

This Day of Action is coordinated by a community-based coalition that includes The Society of United Professionals, OPSEU, and the Labour Council as well as legal aid clinics and other supporters.

Premier Doug Ford cut Legal Aid funding in Ontario by 30%. It is having disastrous consequences for Ontario's most vulnerable people. The hardest hit include women fleeing domestic violence, refugees fleeing life-threatening persecution, and people facing prison because they can’t afford a lawyer. With community legal clinics facing unprecedented cuts they will be unable to help all of the people who need their help to stave off eviction from their home or to access entitlements like workers' compensation and disability support payments.

Join an event near you on July 30 and be part of the mobilization to stop the cuts and save legal aid.
