The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne has received funding from the Ministry of the Attorney General to establish a Legal Aid Clinic Pilot Project. The project will provide assistance to victims of crime & their families in areas that are not provided for locally.
A legal aid coordinator will work with other agencies and programs, on and off-reserve, to establish a list of resources, programs, and services for community members. This may include outside agencies which assist victims of crimes; appointments with legal counsel and/or assisting with processing Skennen (Peace) Orders within the community of Akwesasne.
The clinic will be held every Wednesday starting October 13, 2021 through March 2022. If you have any questions, please contact the Akwesasne Legal Aid Clinic at 613-575-2250 ext. 1028.
