Parkdale Community Legal Services (PCLS) works to tackle poverty law issues through a combination of community development, organizing, and action facilitated by legal representation, summary legal advice, and community legal education. PCLS is also a teaching clinic for Osgoode Hall Law School and law students are our primary caseworkers, supervised by PCLS staff.
We serve low-income clients in a culturally diverse community on the west side of Toronto, particularly in the areas of housing and homelessness, immigration and migrant rights’ law, workers’ rights issues, and social assistance, violence, and health issues, in conjunction with community development work to address systemic issues of poverty and social exclusion. PCLS is committed to advancing racial, cultural, and social equity in its work with the Parkdale community.
We are seeking a Treasurer and 3-5 additional volunteers to join our Board of Directors.
