The formation of Aboriginal
Legal Services in Toronto


Aboriginal Legal Services in Toronto was established February 21, 1990.

ALS was formed following a needs assessment by the

Native Canadian Centre of Toronto in the mid-1980s.

The Centre had been operating legal-related programs for Aboriginal people in Toronto but concluded an agency dedicated to this issue was needed.
