Resources for Self-Represented Litigants

This portal provides information on what is expected of you, and instructions to be followed, if you bring your own application for leave to appeal or if you have been named as a respondent on an application for leave to appeal.

Getting Help With Your Leave Application

  • Pro Bono Ontario has a list of lawyers who can help low-income, self-represented persons with an application for leave to appeal.  You may apply for assistance by filling out the application form on the Pro Bono Ontario website.
  • You can also browse the Court's website for sources that make legal information available to the general public. Many of these sources also provide information on how you can find a lawyer or where you can get free or low-cost legal services.
