Courtworker Program


 Legal Aid

The Courtworker Program allows for 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. ALS operates Aboriginal criminal, family and youth court worker programs in Toronto. Aboriginal criminal court workers attend all of 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.
