Our History

The Clinic started in 1981 as the Simcoe Legal Services Clinic, providing legal services to persons with low income who lived in Simcoe County. In 2001, our geographic area of responsibility was expanded to include the County of Haliburton and the City of Kawartha Lakes, more than 12,000 square kilometers in total. We changed our name to Community Legal Clinic – Simcoe, Haliburton, Kawartha Lakes. The Clinic’s lawyers, paralegals and support staff provide legal services from our main office in Orillia and seven satellite offices located throughout our catchment area.
