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
Helen Tewolde, the Foundation’s Director of Policy and Programs, has been named a 2020/2021 Action Canada Fellow by Action Canada and the Public Policy Forum.
Several organizations have created or compiled COVID-19 related resources for the nonprofit and the justice sectors. Here are a few we believe may be helpful.
