How We Can Help

We provide free legal services for low income residents of south Etobicoke

All services are free to persons who qualify. Clients may be required to pay expenses associated with their case if they are able. The Board of Directors has established priorities for clinic work, especially representation at Courts and Tribunals.

We provide general information, advice and referrals by telephone and in-person. We also provide brief services and representation.

Family Law Referrals: We can refer people to Metro Toronto Family Law Services for free legal advice. (Phone: 416-696-2992)

Summary Advice: If you contact us with a problem in one of the areas of law we practice, we may discuss your situation with you and advise you about your legal options. If we are unable to provide advice, we will do our best to refer you to other organizations.

Brief Services: We may also assist with legal processes such as completing legal documents, reviewing paperwork and contacting agencies with you. You must be financially eligible to receive these services.

Representation: Some legal situations involve a court or tribunal. In such cases, we may provide representation to people who are financially eligible. Legal representation is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Public Legal Education: SECLS conducts public legal education workshops. These workshops are normally held at the request of one of our community partners. If you would like a lawyer or community legal worker to speak to your group about one of the areas of law that we practice, please contact us
