Test-case and appellate litigation are key tools that we use to advance our strategic plan. We work closely with caseworkers in community legal clinics across the province to identify issues and potential legal cases, and apply an equity framework and a human rights lens to guide our decision-making around which cases to take on and which legal arguments to make. Our litigation efforts focus on resolving systemic problems in provincial and federal income security programs.
