LAO welcomes online feedback to refugee law services transformation

Posted on: Friday, February 22, 2013

Between Feb. 21 and Mar. 11, 2013, Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) is asking the refugee bar and stakeholders for their feedback on its proposed new refugee law services delivery model. LAO developed this new model in light of Bill C-31 and in consultation with stakeholders over the past few months.

LAO currently provides refugee services according to interim measures announced on Jan. 25, 2013 and its expansion of these interim measures announced on Feb. 5, 2013.

LAO will share the feedback it receives from stakeholders after Mar. 11, and use this information to finalize LAO’s model for delivering refugee services.
