  • To recognize the diverse legal needs of low income individuals and disadvantaged communities.
  • To operate within a framework of accountability for the expenditure of public funds.

The Clinic was established in 1985 when the Durham Tenants Hotline applied for funding as a full-service legal clinic. The clinic opened in February 1985 under its current name The Durham Community Legal Clinic. In December 2001, the clinic co-located with Legal Aid which provides low income residents of Durham Region quality legal services in a convenient central location.

The Durham Community Legal Clinic has amended our By-Law to be in accordance with the Not-For-Profit Corporations Act. If you wish to review or make comments with respect to these changes, please contact our office.
