The legal services include advice and representation to individual and group clients, public legal education, law reform and community development activities. ACE serves people 60 years of age and over in the Greater Toronto Area, and may also provide services to seniors outside of Toronto if the case is of significance to the seniors' community.

They offer both direct legal services and a directory of resources on seniors' rights, fraud prevention, and financial advice among others.
