Would You Like to See More Free Legal Support Services in Wellington & Dufferin Counties for Injured Workers?
Pressently, injured workers in Wellington & Dufferin counties have to travel to Kitchener or Mississauga to obtain free legal services from the Office of the Worker Advisor - OWA. There is a wait list for the OWA.
The only other option is for injured workers to travel to Toronto for only one of two speciality clinics in all of Ontario. Who also have a waitlist.
The President of IWWDC, believes this is NOT right!
and is currently working with Legal Aid clinics, ONIWG executives and
others to consider having additional legal support services specifically
for injured workers of Wellington & Dufferin Counties.
One option is for IWWDC to provide these services directly or oversee the services
to be provided to local injured workers.
What IWWDC needs to make this happen! A meeting between ONIWG executives, the MPP for Guelph, and the President of IWWDC recently occurred, but we need to have a meeting with all our areas MPPs
to secure more support from the Provincial government.
MPPs will generally not meet with anyone other than their local constituents. If you want to help and live in the area of the following MPPs:
Ted Arnott (Wellington),
Randy Pettapiece (Wellington), and
Sylvia Jones (Dufferin).
then Please contact IWWDC by e-mail Injuredworkersofwdc@gmail.com and help arrange a meeting with your MPP.
