Dear Friends and Supporters,

JFCY hosted our 38th AGM last Thursday evening; also in attendance were other clinic staff from our new co-location and David Field, the President and CEO of Legal Aid Ontario.

At the AGM, we presented parts of our 2016 Annual Report.

I wish to highlight the dedication, resilience and effort of all our staff in maintaining a high level of services throughout the year.

We thank the Law Foundation of Ontario for their long- standing financial support which has allowed us to continue running our Street Youth Legal Services program and to Legal Aid Ontario for providing core funding this year to meet the needs of our homeless youth clients; plus additional services.

The Annual Report also highlights our client and test case work, plus our community development work which ranges from PLE to law reform activities.

Thank you for your on-going support and we look forward to another exciting year!

Emily Chan, Acting Executive Director
