Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) has begun consulting with LAO-funded refugee and immigration service providers on two proposed new standards to better distinguish between appropriate levels of expertise and experience required for different kinds of cases.

Between November 18, 2013 and January 31, 2014, stakeholders will be able to provide feedback either though in-person sessions, teleconferences or by sending comments, questiosn and suggestions to or through our online form.

The deadline for all written submissions is January 25, 2014.
