The Law Union of Ontario will be hosting our annual AGM on Saturday, March 4th, 2023. This is a great opportunity to get involved with the Law Union, and to help support progressive legal work in Toronto. Food and coffee will be provided. This year we’re excited to be joined by Diana Chan McNally, a Toronto-based community worker, housing advocate, and educator who will discuss the state of housing and homelessness in Toronto.

The Law Union of Ontario’s Annual General Meeting
The meeting is open to members and those interested in joining the Law Union.
The Steering Committee will update you on the projects with which we have been involved throughout the year. We will also look at what is planned for the coming year.
Elections will also be held for the Law Union’s new Steering Committee. If you plan to run for the Steering Committee, please send me a private e-mail, so that we can keep track and numbers (and know if we’ll need a “formal” election.) We encourage you to join the Steering Committee and otherwise get involved with our good causes. We are always in need of more people to work on the many projects.
Food and socializing to follow…details T.B.A.
We hope to see you there!!
