Check out the website for Èducaloi [English version], Quèbec’s legal education in plain language institution. The site is very attractive, with lots of eye-catching leads into the usual bodies of law relevant to most citizens. Something so simple as a site map is handled with style, showing again how good design facilitates good understanding. An almost comparable institution in Ontario would be CLEO (Community Legal Education Ontario), which is aimed more at “low-income and disadvantaged people” than Èducaloi seems to be (and which could do with a complete overhaul of its website).

I only wish one could pronounce it e-du-ca-loy, which comes off my tongue at least more pleasingly than the cal-wah ending the real language requires.
