This series of webinars and accompanying workbook trains frontline service providers in how to support clients with legal questions and issues. The training provides information about various legal information resources available, as well as guides service providers through a variety of scenarios. It also includes extra resources: a series of legal information podcasts and transcripts, covering popular topics such as divorce, custody, fraud and eviction, translated into ten different languages.

Immigrants in rural areas face significant barriers to accessing accurate legal information, due to isolation, distance, and language proficiency. For many immigrants in rural areas, frontline service providers are the only sources of information they are able to access. So this training aims to equip service providers with the legal knowledge and information they need to support their clients.

This resource was funded by the Law Foundation of Canada and produced as part of YWCA St. Thomas Elgin’s Connecting Communities Project.
