What's New...

We've Amalgamated!

  • As of April 1, 2017, three of Ottawa's community legal clinics have become one! The legal clinics of Community Legal Services Ottawa Centre, South Ottawa Community Legal Services, and West End Legal Services are now Community Legal Services of Ottawa! We continue to provide the same access to justice services to the Ottawa community. Our hope is that our new organization will improve accessibility, consistency, and overall quality of service for our clients. We are maintaining three office locations to ensure that our clients can access services in their own communities. Our new website has yet to launch. In the meantime, information on our services can still be found at the websites of the original clinics.
