Newcomer Conversations: Learning Canadian Law
Halton Community Legal Services is delivering free workshops called “Newcomer Conversations” on a variety of legal topics which are important to newcomers living in Halton. Delivering public legal information is an important part of our mandate to help people who have low-incomes in Halton solve their legal problems.
We work together with our community partners who serve newcomers in Halton to organize workshops for their clients or members who want to learn about:
- Worker’s Rights (Employment Law)
- Tenant’s Rights (Housing Law)
- Family Law
- Human Rights and Discrimination: Overcoming the “Canadian Experience” barrier
- Social Assistance and Public Benefits
- Making Decisions in Advance: Power of Attorneys and Wills
If you are interested in having Halton Community Legal Services deliver a workshop to help you meet your client’s needs, please get in touch with us by email or call (905) 875-2069 to talk about how we can work together.
The Newcomer Conversations project also aims to better understand the legal needs of newcomers in Halton and to develop best practices for the delivery of public legal education and information to newcomers.
This project is funded in part by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
