Aboriginal Legal Services

COURT WORKERS PROGRAM

Aboriginal court workers explain legal rights and obligations to their clients. They assist in securing legal counsel, finding interpreters if they are needed, assist with pre-sentence reports, bail hearings, and referrals.

Aboriginal Legal Services of Toronto operates Aboriginal criminal, family and youth court worker programs in Toronto. Aboriginal criminal court workers attend all the Toronto area criminal courts. The family and youth court workers are located at family court at 311 Jarvis and also can go to other courts if necessary.

Please note that Court Workers can not provide legal advice to clients on particular issues but can refer clients to lawyers and advise counsel to assist with legal matters and inquiries.
