The Law Foundation of Ontario takes an active and engaging approach to our work as a grantmaker and to carry out our mandate of advancing access to justice. Since our creation in 1974, we have worked with and given out over $1B in grants to hundreds of carefully selected grantees and to Legal Aid Ontario.
The Law Foundation of Ontario works in five broad areas:
Manages a number of grant programs and makes grants to support a wide range of nonprofit organizations to help people understand the law and to use the law to improve their lives
