Please note that the Center will be closed on Friday, July 20th for staff training.

The Ottawa Legal Information Centre (the Centre) provides legal information and referral services to all residents of Ontario.

Legal Information

The Centre offers a 30-minute meeting with a lawyer to anyone faced with a legal issue. These services are offered in English and in French, in person or by telephone, on a confidential basis.

There are no eligibility criteria and services are offered in all areas of the law, such as family law, immigration law, tenant rights, employment insurance, etc.

Referral Service

In collaboration with numerous legal, government and community organizations, the Centre steers people toward the appropriate local resources.


The Centre is financed by the Department of Justice Canada by the means of the Roadmap for Canada's Official Languages 2013‑2018: Education, Immigration, Communities.

We would also like to thank the Ministry of the Attorney General of Ontario for their support.
