Flemingdon Community Legal Services is a general all purpose clinic. We provide service to our clients in the traditional five areas of clinic law: summary intake; legal representation; community development; law reform; and public legal education..
Community legal clinics are regulated by Legal Aid Ontario under the Legal Aid Services Act. Our services to the community are dependent on funding from LAO, on time restraints under legislation and regulations and on the availability of our caseworkers.
We have a limited legal disbursement budget provided to us by LAO. As a consequence while our legal services are completely free we do ask our clients to reimburse us for legal disbursements (such as medical reports or translations) to the best of their financial ability.
