Dear Community Members:

Considering the situation that currently affects the country and the guidelines given by the health authorities to contain the CORVID-19 virus, we have made the decision to temporarily suspend all services in person until further notice and to provide services only by telephone, videoconference, and email. We know that this will cause inconvenience to certain people but we are simply following the instructions communicated by the health authorities as a measure to protect the members of the community and ourselves.

We remain committed to serving the community responsibly. Therefore, we will only be giving attention to cases that are considered urgent or essential at this moment.

If you need to contact us, you can call 647-563-4201 Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. For legal inquiries, contact the legal clinic at 647-462-3164. Legal inquiries will be answered during the following hours:

Wednesday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
