CLASP has partnered with Osgoode’s Pro Bono Law Students to help vulnerable persons in our community by offering two important clinics.
The ID Clinc will help individuals obtain identification so they can access critical services within society. Law students will assist clients with their government documents to try to ease the application process.
We provide assistance with the following identifications:
- Canadian Citizenship Card
- Foreign Birth Certificates
- Canadian Immigration Documents
- Canadian or Foreign Passport
- Ontario Photo ID Card
- Canadian Birth Certificate
- Ontario Health Card
- Verification of Status
Please note that the clinic’s ability to pay for the application fees will be determined on a case-by-case basis until additional funding is secured.
The I.D. Clinic operates Fridays from 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm at the CLASP Office, located within Osgoode Hall Law School. We ask individuals to bring ALL pieces of identification that they have, current or expired, including bills showing their name and address. To book an appointment or inquire further information, please Contact Us.
Tax Dispute Clinic
The CLASP-KPMG Tax Clinic is the first of its kind that helps low-income people who have received a reassessment letter, or other communication.
Law students will assist clients requiring legal assistance with tax matters, such as:
- Disability tax credits/programs
- Spousal support
- Child tax benefits
- Small business tax credits/deductions
- Housing credits
- Failure to report income
- Garnished wages
Please note, at this time, the Tax Dispute Clinic will not be assisting individuals with filing their tax returns but can provide information regarding eligibility for tax credits.
The Tax Dispute Clinic will operate Tuesdays from 9:30am – 4:30pm at the CLASP Office, located within Osgoode Hall Law School. We ask individuals to bring ALL documentation relating to their tax matter including all communications from CRA (reassessment, letter, etc.) and a copy of their income tax return. To book an appointment or inquire for further information, please Contact Us.
