TEELS is made up of six legal clinics in the east end of Toronto that have come together to form the Toronto East Employment Law Services
TEELS provides free employment law services to individuals with low income. Our clients are extremely diverse, including new immigrants, women, racialized persons, disabled persons, workers in precarious jobs, and those living in poverty.
We provide services regardless of immigration status. Interpretation services are also available. We strive to be as accessible as possible for our clients. Please let us know if you require disability-related or other accommodations.
TEELS’ objective is to provide consistent and holistic employment law services within each of the six legal clinics, recognizing that this is an underserved area of law. Employment-related issues impact a wide range of our clients. We aim to provide workers and former workers with low incomes with access to the legal system and to promote social justice through legal education, advice, representation, advocacy, and community partnerships.
