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

Field Placement Student

My name is Charlie Mawakeesic and I am an aspiring student currently enrolled in the Aboriginal Community Advocacy program at Confederation College. My program required me to complete a 6 week field placement enrollment which I chose to complete at Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic. At first I never heard of Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic but as I began to familiarize myself with them I began to see the different types of services they offer to the public. My time here at Kinna-aweya has been an interesting journey and has definitely been an educational one because being here taught me a lot of about my culture, my community, and myself. Being here also built up my own interest to further my understanding in law. The people here at Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic are one of the best teams of people I have worked along with. The work they do here is important to the city on so many levels and I hope they continue to do the same type of legal work they do. If you are a (future) student with interests in social work and law I recommend Kinna-aweya Legal Clinic because it will be beneficial on so many levels and you will not regret it.
