Pro Bono Students Canada (PBSC) will host bi-monthly human rights summary advice clinics as well as public legal education sessions for Indigenous communities in Ottawa and Thunder Bay. Community members will receive summary advice from volunteer lawyers on their rights under the Human Rights Code and the Canadian Human Rights Act. PBSC students will conduct intake and facilitate referrals during the clinics. Partners include the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC). The OFIFC will lead Indigenous cultural competency training for the volunteer lawyers and PBSC students. This initiative will enhance Indigenous communities’ access to culturally responsive legal support.
