ARCH Disability Law Centre is a specialty community legal aid clinic dedicated to defending and advancing the equality rights of people with disabilities in Ontario. ARCH provides legal services to help Ontarians with disabilities live with dignity and participate fully in our communities. We work with Ontarians with disabilities and the disability community on law reform and policy initiatives, community development, legal advice and referrals, public legal education and litigation.
ARCH’s legal services are provided by lawyers and articling students. Our staff report to a volunteer elected Board of Directors, at least half of whom are people with disabilities. ARCH is a not-for-profit charitable organization with members who elect the Board of Directors at our Annual General Meeting. ARCH has over 60 community partners, including disability, consumer-run, and service delivery organizations.
