During this time of uncertainty and amid a global health crisis, our mission at ACE continues to be more important than ever, as the older population in our communities especially those in Long-Term Care remain the most vulnerable and hard hit. 

 
The Advocacy Centre for the Elderly is a community based legal clinic for low income senior citizens. ACE is managed by a volunteer board of directors at least half of whom are seniors. ACE is funded through Legal Aid Ontario and is the first legal clinic in Canada to specialize in the legal problems of seniors.
 
ACE provides direct legal services to low-income seniors, public legal education, and engages in law reform activities. ACE services and activities are in relation to areas of law of special importance to the seniors' population.
