I’m a LLB graduate from the UK with a 2.1 which converts into a 3.3 gpa I believe. Im at 160 lsat but l’m pretty sure i can get it above 165+. What are my chances in Ontario schools. 
 

My last 2 years are a 3.7 gpa and I was also wondering whether schools here take ethnic background and hardship into consideration.

Some do, some don't. Off the top of my head, Osgoode let's you make a statement about struggles you've overcome, Windsor is a very holistic school overall, and several schools let you apply access.

You'll get the best information by doing some research on your own. This is a source of information: https://www.oxfordseminars.ca/LSAT/lsat_profiles.php though going directly to each school's website would be more up to date and accurate.

In addition to what @SNAILS has mentioned, this forum also typically urges applicants to err on the side of caution when discussing their hardships in personal statements. Here's a really good thread that sort of teases out the cautious approach you should take:
