Legal Aid Coverage for Health Care Workers Permanent Residence Pathway

Wednesday, December 23, 2020

Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) will be offering certificates for lawyers to assist clients with applications under the Health Care Workers Permanent Residence Pathway. The certificate will cover up to 7 hours for preparation of the application and representation while it is being processed.

LAO’s financial eligibility guidelines will apply. Since applicants will necessarily have worked in order to qualify for the program, not all will be able to meet the financial eligibility guidelines. Applicants should review the guidelines to check if they qualify based on their income and family size before applications open in mid-January.
