Advancing access to justice
Each year, The Law Foundation of Ontario awards millions of dollars to many carefully selected grantees. Through the work of grantees, and through funds paid to Legal Aid Ontario, the Foundation is carrying out its mission to advance access to justice in the province.
Hello, are you looking for:
The Law Foundation of Ontario makes grants to advance access to justice that align with our statutory objectives of: legal education, legal aid, legal research, and law libraries within Ontario.
We provide one-time and ongoing funding through a variety of granting programs. Grants are made to nonprofit organizations that work to benefit the people of Ontario. We also have a unique fund that provides grants to nonprofit organizations across Canada. We do not provide funding to individuals or to for-profit ventures or to support litigation or advocacy.
The Foundation has invested over $700K to fund 13 Measuring Impacts and Progress research projects to support empirical research to help improve how the justice system serves the people of Ontario.
The Foundation has invested over $400K to support six Justice and Technology Research projects to better understand the practical ways that technology is, or could, change how legal services are provided and to support access to justice for people with legal needs.
