Flight PS752 Legal Relief Initiative

At the request of the Department of Justice, Pro Bono Ontario has launched a national toll-free legal advice hotline for families of Canadian citizens or permanent residents killed aboard Ukrainian International Airlines flight 752. Callers will speak with a free triage lawyer who will assess their legal needs, provide summary legal advice and legal drafting assistance, and make referrals to pro bono lawyers as appropriate. PBO has partnered with Iranian Canadian Legal Professionals (“ICLP”) to develop a linguistically proficient and culturally sensitive panel of volunteer lawyers to provide additional assistance. Starting Monday January 27, families will be able to call 1-855-776-1855 Monday – Friday, from 10 am – 6 pm EST.
