What is Health Justice, anyway?

Late in 2016, with project funding from Legal Aid Ontario, Rexdale legal clinic entered into a new service area, in partnership with Rexdale Community Health Centre, Black Creek Community Health Centre and the law student clinic at Osgoode Law School, CLASP. Our health justice team includes a lead lawyer, and other Rexdale staff as available, and provides an opportunity for two or three law students at a time to serve clients. The team strives to meet the legal needs of clients with complex, overlapping legal and medical needs. The team also aims to provide needed legal information to health care workers so that they can better understand the legal environment of  newcomers, the disabled or anyone with complex needs.

Rexdale has expanded its services!

With major assistance from Legal Aid Ontario, and in partnership with other clinics,  our clinic has added an employment lawyer, and an immigration lawyer. Our new staff are shared with West Toronto and South Etobicoke Community Legal Services, so may not be available at our clinic every day, but we can make appointments for consultations.
