Legal Aid Ontario to restore immigration and refugee services

Posted on: Aug 27, 2019

Further to the federal government's August 12, 2019 announcement of $25.7 million in one‑time funding for immigration and refugee services, Legal Aid Ontario is fully restoring services in these areas for the remainder of the fiscal year.

Beginning August 16, 2019, legal aid coverage for immigration and refugee services will resume at levels offered prior to April 15, 2019, when certain services were suspended.

"This is very good news," says David Field, LAO's President and CEO, "and allows us to restore immigration and refugee services for the remainder of the year. We would like to thank the federal government for this funding."

Message from the President

We have a wonderful and outstanding law association. But don’t take my word for it. Visit. Explore. Call. Write. Participate. It almost sounds like a pitch for a faraway tourist attraction except it is right here in your backyard. We have something that is almost elusive / unheard of when compared to other legal organizations. What is it that makes us different, sets us apart, and makes this Association central to its membership but also important and attractive to others? This bears consideration. CONTINUE READING


Mark Giavedoni, President 2019-2020

The Hamilton Law Association

The Association’s affairs are governed by trustees and officers who ensure that Association undertakings are within the mandate and in the best interests of our legal community. The many valued volunteers who are members of the numerous committees within the structure of the HLA strive to represent our membership consistently and effectively. The Anthony Pepe Memorial Law Library, operated within the scope of the HLA, is one of the largest law libraries in Ontario and houses over 30,000 volumes.

The Hamilton Law Association continues to strive to educate and support its membership in the practice of law as well as to advocate for their interests as lawyers...
