In the Province of Ontario, paralegals are legal professionals who are licensed by the Law Society of Ontario to supply specific legal services including providing legal advice and representation for clients in some Courts such as small claims court, provincial offences court for traffic offences and minor criminal offences, and administrative tribunals such as the Landlord and Tenant Board.
That means that licensed paralegals in Ontario do not need to be supervised by a lawyer to supply such legal services to you. Generally, this comes as a cost savings to the client.
