Nominate an outstanding access to justice leader

March 21, 2018

The Law Foundation of Ontario is seeking nominations for its signature Guthrie Award.

The Guthrie Award recognizes individuals who have a significant and proven track record of furthering access to justice. 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 people; served women experiencing violence; strengthened the community clinic system to assist people with low incomes; and helped champion the human rights of Arabs and Muslims in Canada.

Call for nominations until May 17, 2018
Nominations are being accepted until May 17, 2018. See the Guthrie Award webpage for details on the streamlined nomination process.
