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.
Helen Tewolde, the Foundation’s Director of Policy and Programs, has been named a 2020/2021 Action Canada Fellow by Action Canada and the Public Policy Forum.
Several organizations have created or compiled COVID-19 related resources for the nonprofit and the justice sectors. Here are a few we believe may be helpful.
