METRAC (Ontario Women’s Justice Network) has:

  • Resources through its Transformed Project, to help workers address partner violence within Two-Spirit, Nonbinary and Trans communities. The web page includes links to a glossary, research, and recordings of webinars for service providers.
  • Online training modules and a recorded webinar on human trafficking. The training outlines criminal, immigration, and employment laws related to human trafficking in Ontario, and how service providers can support clients who may have been trafficked. The modules are also available in French.

Connecting Ottawa has updated resource sheets on:  
  • Canada Child Benefit: a tax-free monthly payment to help with the cost of raising children under 18 years of age. 
  • Transition Child Benefit: for people who get money from Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program, but do not get the Canada Child Benefit, or get less than the full amount of Canada Child Benefit. 

Get more information on these benefits from the March 8, 2022, and March 22, 2022 recordings of CLEO Connect webinars featuring Connecting Ottawa lawyers.  

  • Wills and Powers of Attorney: information and services to help low-income clients draft these documents. Note that some services are specific to Ottawa.
