In 2009, Canada developed the first medical-legal partnership outside the United States. Pro Bono Law Ontario’s Medical-Legal Partnerships for Children is a partnership between the Children’s Hospital at London’s Health Sciences Centre, the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, the Hospital for Sick Children and five pro bono legal partners including Pro Bono Law Ontario, Lerners LLP, McMillan LLP, Siskinds LLP and Torkin Manes LLP.

Since 2012, Australia has developed multiple advocacy-health alliances based on the U.S. medical-legal partnership approach. Information on these programs can be found in their report Better Health Through Medical-Legal Partnership.
