Didn’t catch Day 4 of Access to Justice Week? Here are some highlights…
In “A Spotlight on Legal information for Newcomers: Launch of PLEA’s Newcomer Website and Initiative”, staff from PLEA engaged in a travelling launch tour to locations around Saskatoon to share about NewLI.
As described in detail in our earlier post on A2J for Newcomers, NewLi provides plain language legal information about laws, governments and the justice system. It promotes access to justice for this vulnerable segment of the population by allaying fears that may keep newcomers from confidently participating in and benefiting from Canada’s justice and administrative systems.
NewLI is now launched. Visit us at newli.plea.org.
