In order to ensure that the LCO fully considers the practical and theoretical implications that this Project raises, we have established an Advisory Group.
The Advisory Group is made up of legal practitioners, academics from law and other relevant disciplines, representatives from community and advocacy organizations and government representatives with particular expertise in the area of the law as it affects vulnerable workers. The role of the Advisory Group is to provide advice on the issues raised by documents released in this Project, provide input into the Consultation Strategy in this Project and provide feedback on the impact or effectiveness of potential LCO recommendations.

Erika Gates-Gasse – Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants
