Pro Bono Law Help Centres in Toronto and Ottawa will be closing in December due to a $500,000 shortfall. The Provincial government has declined to fund the shortfall. These Centres help self represented litigants navigate the court process. Approximately 18,000 are assisted annually.  Without help this service will end and yet another barrier to access to justice will manifest. All donations will go to PBO regardless of the success of saving the centres. Donate here or head to https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/pro-bono-ontario/#donate-now-pane to donate.

PBO will issue charitable receipts to all donors for the net amount received by PBO.

*Announcement and Housekeeping*

Pro Bono Ontario is excited to announce it will be keeping its Law Help Centres for unrepresented litigants open throughout 2019! Today, the federal Department of Justice made a one-time contribution to PBO of $250,000 through its Justice Innovation and Partnership Program that, along with generous donations like yours, will help us maintain these programs while we work to secure sustainable, institutional funding. THANK YOU!

Name as it should appear on a tax receipt
