Legal Aid Ontario funds legal clinics across Ontario. There are two types of legal clinics: community legal clinics and specialty legal clinics.

Community legal clinics provide free legal services to people with low incomes who live in their area. Some help with wills. Search for the clinic in your area using your postal code to find out more.

Some specialty legal clinics provide free legal services to specific groups of people with low incomes. The Advocacy Centre for the Elderly may be able to help with some issues related to wills.
