I am a Toronto-area lawyer and notary public. I have witnessed first-hand how ignorance of the law can have drastic and severe consequences on people who don't understand the system. This is especially true for non-citizens. It is important for people to be aware of their rights and obligations under Canadian law, so that they can assert themselves with confidence.
This group is intended to promote access to justice; knowledge is power.
Come out, learn something new and practical, make new friends.
