 SALCO: COVID-19 Measures

SALCO is open but will not meet with clients in person.  We will continue to provide intake, respond to new inquiries, and provide services to ongoing clients. However, to ensure the health and safety of SALCO staff, clients, and others, until further notice, intake appointments will be conducted over the telephone and not in person.  Satellite services will also continue with phone intakes (in-person SALCO services will be suspended until further notice). Emergencies will be assessed on a case by case basis.  We ask that people not visit our office, but contact us by telephone (416-487-6371).

 We are also postponing in-person public legal education and will not be attending any outside meetings or events until further notice. 

As the situation surrounding COVID-19 is rapidly changing, we will alter our approach as required. We will approach all decisions thoughtfully, taking into account advice from public health authorities, based on the best evidence available.  We are committed to continuing to provide high-quality services and hope to resume our regular practices as soon as it is safe to do so.
