Introduction to the Canadian Legal System

November 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Free
Halton Community Legal Services is presenting an introductory workshop about the Canadian Legal System.

Are you interested in learning about the laws in Canada and how those laws impact your everyday life? This workshop will focus on the different levels of government in Canada and how laws get made. We will discuss where our rights and responsibilities come from and what you can do to resolve disputes.

Halton Community Legal Services is a legal clinic that has been providing high quality legal assistance to low-income individuals in the Halton community for over 40 years. They provide free legal assistance in areas of law which particularly affect low-income individuals or disadvantaged communities, such as legal matters related to housing and shelter, employment standards, income maintenance, entitlement to social assistance and other similar government programs. In addition, they educate the public about their legal rights through public legal education workshops and engage in law reform to try to improve laws, regulations or policies of government that impact their clients.
