Ontario Paralegal Association

Welcome to the Ontario Paralegal Association

The inaugural meeting of the newly formed Ontario Paralegal Association took place in Toronto on November 22nd. Our new Bylaws were approved and a new Board of Directors and officers appointed.

 

The Board will immediately be commencing work on its goals for 2015 and will strike committees, seeking volunteers from across Ontario to participate.

 

The Ontario Paralegal Association is the voice of paralegals across Ontario, advocating in the interests of paralegals with colleges, the provincial government and the Law Society of Upper Canada.  Paralegals in Ontario provide access to justice at a reasonable cost, and are regulated by the Law Society of Upper Canada.

 

For members of the public visiting our site, you can learn more about what paralegals in Ontario do, and find a paralegal in a practice area helpful to you. 

President's Remarks

I am honored to have been elected by your new Board of Directors to be the inaugural President of this new and vibrant organization.

 

We are at a turning point in the advancement of the profession. We are now recognized as the viable alternative for access to justice. We have the ear of the Attorney General's Ministry and the Law Society of Upper Canada seeks our input on a variety of issues.

 

I look forward to working with the dedicated paralegals on your Board of Directors but we need your help to work on committees in all areas of practice so we can move forward as you the members wish to do.

 

Your attendance at the monthly Saturday meetings strengthens the comraderie and knowledge is shared. As in all aspects of law, one never stops learning.

 

Thank you for the confidence you have shown in me and be assured that "My door will always be open."  The full listing of our new Board of Directors including our executive committee is below.
