Question & AnswerWhere can I get legal help and information about my Small Claims issue?
4. Call a community legal clinic
If you can’t afford a lawyer, you may also be able to get help from a community legal clinic.
Community legal clinics provide information, advice, and representation on various legal issues. Not all legal clinics help with all legal problems, but staff may be able to refer you to someone who can help.
To qualify for community legal clinic services:
- your legal issue must be one the clinic handles,
- you must live in the area the clinic serves, and
- your income and cannot be above a certain level.
To find out if you qualify, contact your local legal clinic. Most legal clinics provide brief advice, or “summary advice”, without asking about your financial situation.
You can find a legal clinic by entering your postal code into the Legal Aid Ontario search box.
