Public Legal Education

Across Ontario, CELA staff reach many audiences on many topics. We work with individual citizens, citizens’ groups, service providers (including staff in other legal aid clinics), private bar lawyers, and professional associations. We attend public meetings, host webinars, and write varied publications.

Looking for information about environmental law?

Start with this website! It contains our media releases, blogs, our monthly e-Bulletin, and all of our publications and presentations created since 1999 (detailed reports, briefing notes, slide decks for public speaking, fact sheets, and more). As well, the CELA Foundation (formerly the Resource Library for the Environment and the Law) provides access to the library and the Environmental History Program (an extensive range of online resources reflecting and cataloguing the environmental history of Canada, including the CELA Archives).
