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
Nominate an outstanding access to justice champion
The Foundation is seeking nominations for the Guthrie Award, our signature award to recognize access to justice champions.
