The legal committee was established in 2013 to provide community outreach, identify and serve community legal service needs, and promote and provide access to justice to low-income members of the Canadian Iranian community. IWOO, in partnership with CILAC pro bono, is a not-for profit corporation that aims to provide members of the Canadian-Iranian community, who do not qualify for legal aid yet have lower income, access to legal information, summary advice, and referrals in a linguistically and culturally sensitive environment.

Staffed by volunteer lawyers from the Canadian-Iranian community, participants have the opportunity to speak with one of the lawyers for 30 minutes.
