Province Doubling Number of People Eligible for Legal Aid
Ontario is moving forward with a plan that will allow over one million more people to qualify for legal aid services.
Ontario will raise the income level — also known as the eligibility threshold — at which people can qualify for legal aid assistance. Once fully implemented, an additional one million low-income people will have access to legal aid services — more than double the number of people eligible for legal aid services today.
