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
The Law Foundation of Ontario Catalyst granting is helping Luke’s Place to expand its services, including the Virtual Legal Clinic.
We participate in LAWS’ Summer Job Program and this year we were joined by Makayla. Here are some of her reflections of her time working with us.
