The Law Foundation of Ontario is seeking nominations for the Guthrie Award, our signature award to recognize access to justice champions.
The Guthrie Award recognizes individuals who have a significant and proven track record of furthering access to justice for people in Ontario. The award was created in 1996 to honour H. Donald Guthrie who served as a Foundation trustee for 21 years, including 13 years as Chair.
Guthrie Award recipients have come from many directions – the judiciary, private bar, community legal clinics, academia, and nonprofit organizations. They saw opportunities to make a difference and took it. Guthrie recipients have built bridges between youth and the justice system, advanced justice for Indigenous peoples, served women experiencing violence, strengthened the community clinic system to assist people with low incomes, and much more.
Call for nominations open until March 24, 2023
Nominations are being accepted until March 24, 2023, 5 p.m. EST. See the Guthrie Award webpage for details on the streamlined nomination process.
