Legal Information, Not Advice

This site contains legal information, not legal advice. It is created and hosted by the Durham Community Legal Clinic, a Community Legal Clinic based out of Oshawa.

Legal Representation

Many of the issues that we expect to develop during the pandemic will result in legal issues. If you live in Durham Region and are eligible for our services, please contact us to see if we can assist you further.


Please note that many courts and tribunals are currently suspended for the duration of the pandemic.

Outside of Durham

Although we directly serve residents in Durham Region, there are Community Legal Clinics located across Ontario.


Call the Client Service Centre at 416-979-1446 or toll-free 1-800-668-8258, or visit the Legal Aid Ontario website, to find the Community Legal Clinic closest to you.
