Ottawa to fund Ontario refugee and immigration legal aid after provincial cuts
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced one-time funding of $26 million for refugee claimants and immigrants affected by the recent cuts by the Ontario government. Doug Ford had announced a 30% cut in legal aid funds that help refugee claimants and new immigrants. Making the announcement at a function in Toronto, Justin Trudeau said politicians of the Conservative party claim to stand by the people, but in fact, they are victimizing them by cutting financial aid. The Canadian Bar Association has welcomed the announcement. Attorney General of Ontario Doug Downey tweeted, “It is a good thing that the federal government has claimed responsibility for legal aid to immigrants and refugee claimants.”
