Nominate an outstanding access to justice leader

February 8, 2017

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

The Law Foundation of Ontario created the Guthrie Award in 1996 to honour Hugh Donald Guthrie, Q.C., a long-time member and Chair of the Foundation’s Board. This year the Foundation celebrates the 20th anniversary of the first time the award was presented.

Celebrating 20th anniversary

With the 2017 Guthrie Award, the Foundation hopes to recognize a champion who is actively engaged with the challenges and opportunities in today’s justice landscape – someone who has made a difference in the past and is also focused on the future. The 20th anniversary of the Guthrie Award, and the celebratory event to honour this year’s recipient, will provide an opportunity to profile both the important work that has been done and the work that still needs to be done to advance justice for all Ontarians.


Call for nominations until April 17, 2017

The Foundation welcomes and encourages nominations of individuals who have a significant and proven track record of furthering access to justice.

Nominations are being accepted until April 17, 2017. For details on our streamlined nomination process, please visit our Guthrie Award webpage.
