Hamilton Legal Outreach (HLO) understands that people living with mental health and substance use concerns can face barriers in accessing legal services. HLO aims to reduce those barriers by meetings people in their communities, so that we are involved in a journey towards recovery and harm-reduction.
Hamilton Community Legal Clinic and Legal Aid Ontario have teamed up through HLO to offer FREE legal clinics in the community where individuals can talk to a lawyer confidentiality and with no judgment. To find us, please see the monthly calendar here for locations and times. HLO also partners with local social and health agencies to provide wraparound services. HLO has a social worker available to assist clients.
Please keep in mind that some sites only accept or prioritize youth, Indigenous clients, and women. If you do not identify to any of these groups or/and need further assistance, please call us at 905 527 4572, ext. 51.
