Connecting Communities

Connecting Communities supports the development of legal information training and the capacity of frontline community workers and trusted intermediaries to provide basic legal information and referrals to their clients.
WHAT

Connecting Communities provides project grants of up to $50K to support the development of legal information training and improve the capacity of frontline community workers and trusted intermediaries to provide basic legal information and referrals to their clients, who are people who: do not speak English or French; live in rural or remote areas; and/or have communication impairments.

Connecting Communities’ innovative structure is a network that includes:

  • A project manager, housed at Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO), to coordinate the Connecting Communities program, conduct community outreach, and help to link project partners
  • An advisory committee of community legal education service providers
  • Public Legal Education Learning Exchange, a network that provides online resources and an annual forum for people interested in learning more about community legal education
