ONTARIO ASSOCIATION OF BLACK PARALEGALS
Access to Mentorship, Representation and Justice
Our goal is to improve access to justice and combat systemic racism within the justice system by equipping
Black paralegals and law clerks with the tools to navigate systemic injustice in the workplace. We provide mentorship
opportunities that will help build capacity within the Black legal community by promoting career equality and
advancement. In addition, we equip all legal professionals with the tools to recognize, bring awareness to and
ultimately combat systemic inequality in the justice system.
OABP seeks to provide improved and increased access to justice to racialized clients by eliminating economic barriers that inhibit their ability to pursue civil matters related to racism, discrimination, diversity and inclusion.
