Your Legal Rights

Yourlegalrights.on.ca is a new online source of legal information for people across Ontario hosting free and practical resources from hundreds of organizations.
Background:

Community Legal Education (CLEO) funded the Your Legal Rights project as a portal for Ontario residents who face barriers to accessing legal services. The site presents legal information, tools, and next-step referrals for a wide range of legal services. Your Legal Rights began as a single-page resource on the CLEO site, known as the Legal Rights Guide. Due to the extremely diverse audience that the site benefits, we suggested that the new site rebrand Your Legal Rights as a separate site that was mobile-friendly and interactive.The core components of this site are its ability to seach for services, it provides clear pathways by topic, and presents educational training and tools. Agentic created appealing and informative icons to aid navigation, with the intention to offer accessible content to a diverse audience, including immigrants and users with low literacy levels. The site includes a services map with key legal and social services, in addition to public legal education webinars.

Core components of the site:

Legal Resources: multiple formats of legal resources from hundreds of community organizations.
Common Questions: Q&A for everyday legal questions.
Find Services: a searchable referral information source
Training: Legal education webinars for the public and community workers.
News & Events: Latest headlines and events about law and accessible justice
