The internet is a wonderful, yet very large, overwhelming tool. With such an array of information available at your fingertips, things may get confusing, blurred, or forgotten. As a front-line worker in the VAW sector, some resources available to individuals effected by domestic violence may get lost within the web.
Here is a brief reminder that Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) is able to provide legal assistance to individuals experiencing domestic violence. Anyone in Ontario who is experiencing domestic violence can call LAO at 1-800-668-8258 for a free two-hour consultation with a private lawyer.
