Looking for Legal Information or Advice?
OJEN is an education non-profit. While many of our staff are lawyers, we cannot provide you with legal advice or help you with a specific legal problem.
Our resources contain general information about the law for people in Ontario, Canada. They are not intended to be used as legal advice for any specific legal problem.
If you are looking for legal information for a person who is under 18 years old, we recommend the Legal Rights Wiki created by Justice for Children and Youth, which provides legal services to youth under 18 and homeless youth under 25.
If you are looking for information that applies to adults, or general legal information within the province of Ontario, we recommend Steps to Justice, created by Community Legal Education Ontario. (See right for topics and links)
If you need legal advice, you can find a lawyer using the Law Society Lawyer Referral Service. They will connect you with a lawyer or licensed paralegal who will speak with you for up to 30 minutes for free. If you can’t afford to hire a lawyer, you may qualify for free legal help from Legal Aid Ontario.
