More people in Ontario will be eligible for Legal Aid with changes announced by the Attorney General.  Yasir Naqvi announced an increase in the financial eligibility threshold by another 6 percent, which will open the door to another 140,000 people, regardless of their ability to pay.  In 2014 the government announced that it wanted to make Legal Aid accessible to a million more people within the decade and the most recent announcement moves them half way to that goal.  The changes take effect the first of April.
