Applying for a grant: what you need to know
The Law Foundation of Ontario is making a call for applications to its national Access to Justice Fund (ATJF) in the area of investor rights, in particular their legal rights. This initiative provides a unique and exciting opportunity to advance the protection of investor rights. The opportunity for granting is in three areas: research; projects; and articling fellowships.
Many ordinary Canadians invest in the market to provide needed income but they may lack financial literacy or expertise and require information and protection when navigating the often complex landscape. Without adequate information and protection, the rights of retail investors, especially the most vulnerable, may be compromised and it is these investors who are of special interest to The Law Foundation of Ontario.
