The South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario (SALCO) is a not-for-profit legal aid clinic that was first established in 1999. In September 2007 SALCO was given permanent legal clinic status by Legal Aid Ontario.
SALCO’s mandate is to provide access to justice for low-income South Asians in the Greater Toronto area. As a specialty clinic funded by Legal Aid Ontario, SALCO provides advice, brief services and/or legal representation in various areas of poverty law.
South Asians in Canada faced historical barriers to family reunification. Many of those barriers still exist (unable to sponsor parents, targeted for fraud marriages, etc). We must address the systemic racism that underpins our immigration system. cbc.ca/amp/1.5389923?…
