Small satellite office in a rural and remote community in North Western Ontario, Canada. Part of a system of 70+ community legal clinics across the Province of Ontario.

Sponsored by Legal Aid Ontario, the Community Legal Clinic focuses on poverty law – income maintenance, tenant rights, disability law, human rights – for people in marginalized communities.


Nan Normand

I am a community legal worker/licensed paralegal at the Northwest Community Legal Clinic which delivers poverty law services to small urban and rural communities in Ontario. For over forty years my professional live has focused on social justice, community development and human services. I believe that housing is one of the most effective strategies for poverty reduction and am involved in both grassroots and governmental policy advocacy. Over the years, I have shared my experience in many venues, speaking on poverty issues, community work and the importance of developmental evaluation.
