Without sustainable funding, Pro Bono Ontario (PBO) cannot continue providing legal services directly to those who need them. To support PBO, Osler has committed to contribute $125,000 over five years to their #InvestinJustice campaign.

“Pro Bono Ontario increases access to justice in our communities and we fully support and champion their work,” says Mary Paterson, a partner in Osler’s Litigation Group. “Osler believes our five-year commitment to PBO will help to sustain their innovative and award-winning programs like the Free Legal Advice Hotline and the Law Help Centres.”

Pro Bono Ontario serves 30,000 clients each year by providing essential legal services to low-income Ontarians whose needs are not met by government programs. For many years Osler has supported PBO with contributions of time and funds.
