Partner Organizations for the ACLCO-ACJCO, and of Community Legal Clinics

Ontario Project for Inter-clinic Community Organizing (OPICCO):

OPICCO supports Ontario's community legal clinics' efforts in the field of community organizing and community development. It advocates for dedicated funding and staff for community development for all community legal clinics. It promotes efforts at developing training and capacity building in the area of community development. It is a focal point in the sharing of community organizing resources among clinics and community activists. It promotes and facilitates discussion among clinics on community development strategies; and it supports meaningful ways of measuring the impact of community development work on the lives of those who clinics serve. For more information, visit the OPICCO web site at
