Access to Justice Week 2021 - Register now for free public legal seminars

October 12, 2021
As part of the sixth annual Access to Justice Week (A2J Week) in Ontario, members of the public are invited to participate in free legal education seminars, intended to help answer everyday legal questions and connect participants to relevant legal resources.

What does Access to Justice mean?
Access to justice is a fundamental principle of the Canadian justice system. It means that people have access to the information, resources and services necessary to effectively resolve their legal issues.
A2J Week brings the broader justice sector together to engage in meaningful dialogue, share best practices and drive change. These free legal education seminars for the public are one way that the justice sector is working to increase access to justice in communities across the province.
Read on to learn more about these free public seminars and how to register.
