What are Paralegals?

Paralegals are licensed by the Law Society of Ontario to provide Legal Services. The Law Society of Ontario regulates the scope of practice that a Paralegal can perform. 

Paralegals have been regulated in the Province of Ontario since May 2007. In order to provide legal services in Ontario, Paralegals must have Errors and Omissions Insurance and remit yearly fees to the Law Society of Ontario. 

Paralegals can appear in criminal court for summary convictions, Small Claims Court and in Administrative Tribunals to mention some of the areas that a Paralegal can assist you in.
