Ontario Justice Partners Launch New Steps to Justice Website: A First of its Kind in the Province

TORONTO, Jan. 18, 2017 /CNW/ – Problems with landlords, unfair treatment at a job, and getting separated or divorced: these are some of the issues that Ontarians face every day. However, many cannot access the information they need to understand the legal implications of their problems and respond. 
Now they can go to Steps to Justice – a new website that empowers people in Ontario to understand and take action to deal with their legal problems.

Stepstojustice.ca aims to provide reliable answers to common legal questions and problems. ‘It’s sort of like an FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) of law,’ says Paul Schabas, the treasurer of the Law Society of Upper Canada.
