What's New...

  • Ottawa Legal Clinics' Transformation Project: In 2014, three independent legal clinics in Ottawa (Community Legal Services Ottawa Centre; South Ottawa Community Legal Services; and West End Legal Services) began considering an amalgamation, with the goal of improving legal clinic services to our communities. We carefully reviewed our options. In 2015, our report recommends that we proceed with an amalgamation, by maintaining our three main offices and merging our administrations.
