Legal help

The Law Foundation of Ontario does not provide legal advice.

If you are looking for legal help, we recommend that you contact the Law Society Referral Service portal where you can submit a request for a consultation with a legal representative. Once your request is processed you will be given a referral number as well as the name and telephone number of a legal representative who will provide you with a free consultation of up to 30 minutes to help you determine your rights and options.
