Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic Legal advice and assistance to residents of the District of Thunder Bay, particularly Indigenous people, who need assistance with poverty law issues

Area Community Meetings being held in the District beginning next week!

At these meetings, four delegates are elected from each of the regions serviced by the legal clinic (Armstrong, Geraldton, Marathon, Nipigon and Thunder Bay) to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM is an opportunity for delegates to learn more about the activities of the legal clinic over the past year, to talk about poverty law issues, and to share information about what is happening in our communities.

Delegates must be members of Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic. Membership is open to people living in the District of Thunder Bay who are 18 years of age or older and of Aboriginal descent. Membership applications will be available at the meeting. Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic pays travel, meals and accommodations expenses of delegates attending the AGM from out of town (maximums apply). Lunch is provided at the meeting for all delegates. Expenses are reimbursed right after the meeting is over.

Also, the legal clinic’s Audited Financial Statement from the previous fiscal year is presented by the clinic’s auditor.
