Connecting Ottawa will continue to coordinate a consortium of over 40 legal and non-legal organizations to implement a regional plan to provide legal information and referrals to people who are not proficient in English or French or who face communication challenges as the result of a disability or sensory impairment. Established to fulfil a recommendation in the “Connecting Across Language and Distance: Linguistic and Rural Access to Legal Information and Services” report commissioned by the Foundation, the initiative also strengthens linkages between legal and community workers in Ontario and is part of the Foundation’s strategic focus on the training and support of trusted intermediaries.
