Upcoming events


Include, Inform, Inspire: Community Legal Information in 2017: We invite you to join us for a forum for community workers and others interested in public legal education and information (PLEI) that will take place in Toronto on October 26, 2017. We will gather at the Chestnut Conference Centre (Dundas St. W. and Chestnut St.) from 10:00 – 4:00 to hone our PLEI skills, connect with new resources, and share strategies for helping our clients and communities. Ontario’s PLE Learning Exchange, a partnership of CLEO (Community Legal Education Ontario) and OJEN (Ontario Justice Education Network), will host this event with support from the Action Group on Access to Justice (TAG).

The sessions we are planning include:

  • Legal information and legal advice: how are direct service workers filling the gaps?
  • The role of “Trusted Intermediaries”: findings and feedback
  • Skills cafe: hands-on learning about clear language, clear design, and other skills
  • Strategy swap: how to help clients when asserting their legal rights isn’t practical

The early bird registration fee will be $10. Please email Miscia at for more information. And watch this space for updates!
