This webinar will provide an overview of the JHS Learning Hub, a first-of-its-kind in Canada free online civil legal training and education platform for frontline staff who serve justice-involved individuals in Ontario, to help break down barriers to accessing civil justice. The presentation will cover how the Learning Hub came to be and why its resources are crucial in helping fill information gaps in public legal information in Ontario. There will also be scenario walkthroughs where participants will be able to engage with and see how the Hub might assist them with their day-to-day activities working with justice-involved clients.
