Parkdale Community Legal Services is a community based legal clinic serving low income residents of Toronto's west end. PCLS serves clients in the areas of income security, housing, employment, and immigration law, in addition to providing public legal education, supporting community organizing and collective action, and promoting law reform in the pursuit of social justice.
PCLS is also known for its clinical legal education program, run in collaboration with Osgoode Hall Law School.
Funding cuts to Legal Aid and PCLS
On Wednesday June 12th, 2019, PCLS received government budget cuts equaling over a million dollars.
Funding commitments to clinic space in the community are also insecure. PCLS moved to three temporary locations as of July 31, 2019.
We urgently require your support to maintain direct services in the community.
With 48 years in the community, PCLS is looking forward, not back. We need your support to do this.
We are committed to staying in the community and focused on legal representation, education, outreach and organizing that fights the impacts of poverty, amplifies voices, and organizes for change.
Please give today and please give generously.
