Frontline Legal Support
Everyone has a role to play in the efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The legal community has an opportunity to provide pro bono legal services to frontline workers with their most personal legal matters in these challenging times.
If you are a frontline health worker that would like assistance with preparing Will, Power of Attorney, or having documents virtually commissioned, please contact one of our lead firms in either the Ottawa/Eastern Ontario or Toronto/GTA regions.
If you are a lawyer who would like to volunteer, we want to hear from you.
For any general inquiries or if you are a laywer that would like to join us to volunteer, you can reach us at:
