Other Types of Work

SALCO is involved in several community development and law reform initiatives on issues that impact the low-income South Asian community in Toronto, Ontario, and Canada.

We believe that a broad response to the problems that our clients face can have a greater impact in changing legislation, policy, and unfair practices.

SALCO also takes on test case work in poverty law, including two recent interventions at the Supreme Court of Canada.
