Halton Community Legal Services

Our Board

Volunteers play an important role in our community legal clinic. Staff and volunteer clinic members and Board members work in partnership to protect the rights of low-income people and build a more fair and equitable community in Halton consistent with the clinic's Mission Statement.

Our volunteers must live or work in Halton. This ensures local control and the setting of service priorities that respond to the needs of clients living in Halton.

If you support the clinic's Mission Statement and are interested in knowing more about becoming a clinic member or joining the Board of Directors, please contact us.
