All LAO Immigration and Refugee Services Will Continue After July 1, 2017

Legal Aid Ontario (LAO)

As a result of intensive stakeholder consultations in May and June, and ongoing discussions with government, Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) has decided to continue immigration and refugee services at the current level at this time.

More Information: 

More time is needed to complete talks with the federal government about securing a funding solution for immigration and refugee services so that future suspension of services can be avoided.
In addition to ongoing discussions with government partners, LAO will continue to consult with stakeholders on ways all they can work together to sustain quality cost-effective services.
