It is with great sorrow that CLEO learned of the passing of Meruba Sivaselvachandra, an analyst in our online interactive projects group.
Meruba joined CLEO part time in September 2020, assisting with the development of Guided Pathways that help people complete legal documents for family law court and work permit applications. In this time she made a valuable and lasting contribution to CLEO in its mission to help people understand and exercise their legal rights.
While serving with distinction at CLEO, Meruba was also a highly engaged law and MBA student at the University of Toronto, in the combined JD/MBA program.
Meruba's colleagues at CLEO describe her as highly intelligent and thoughtful, an uplifting presence who projected warmth and positivity to everyone with whom she worked. Meruba is remembered for her deep empathy and commitment to helping people who face barriers to accessing the justice system.
CLEO's board and staff extend deepest condolences to Meruba's family. Meruba will be remembered in our hearts.
