How to Become a Paralegal in Ontario

Sep 27, 2022 10:22:37 AM

Over the last few years, paralegal has become a very popular career choice in Ontario. There are a few reasons for this. One, there’s the special status of paralegals in Ontario—unlike in other areas of Canada, paralegals here can become licensed, represent clients in court for certain matters, and run their own practices.

Another reason involves the amount of schooling. Compared to law school, you can become a paralegal and start your career quite quickly. Admission requirements for paralegal programs are fairly simple, and the training itself is relatively short.
