JFCY thinks you should check out this new website that helps you find answers to everyday legal questions.
Today, Community Legal Education Ontario (CLEO) has launched “Your Legal Rights” www.yourlegalrights.on.ca – a new online source of legal information for people across Ontario.
Read below for info from CLEO:
“For tenants who don’t know what steps to take when they have repair problems their landlord refuses to fix, parents who are separating and have questions about custody and access, or workers worried about what will happen to their benefits while they’re on pregnancy leave, Your Legal Rights has free, practical, and easy-to-find legal information.
New features include Common Questions to help direct people to the information they need and an interactive map of key legal and social services throughout the province. Still available are the popular news and events listings on legal issues and access to justice.
If you work at a community organization, check out the Training section for a wide range of legal education webinars. And keep your clients and communities up to date on legal issues by adding content feeds from Your Legal Rights to your organization’s website.
Your Legal Rights is a project of CLEO (Community Legal Education Ontario / Éducation juridique communautaire Ontario) and is funded by the Law Foundation of Ontario. For close to 40 years, CLEO has worked to help people who face barriers to participating in Ontario’s justice system by providing them with the information they need to understand and exercise their legal rights.”
