Welcome to our community page. Don Valley Community Legal Services actively participates in a variety of community activities, public legal education workshops, trainings, and community networking tables. One key component that allows members to be self-empowered is knowledge of what is happening around them. This page will allow us to share with you what is happening in our community. We will post information on local law reform campaigns, and information about our clinic including our Annual General Meeting. If you wish to be on our mailing list, please sign our Membership form.

Included are links to a community calendar for the Flemingdon – Thorncliffe Park area and for the City of Toronto.
