Responsive Grants Program

The Responsive Grants Program enables The Law Foundation of Ontario to fund ideas generated by nonprofit community groups to improve access to justice. These grants have provided seed funding for hundreds of innovative projects across Ontario.

For example, Responsive Grants have enabled:

  • The pilot of “That’s Not Fair!”, an animated series of videos, online games, and lesson plans to introduce children to critical thinking about democracy.
  • Legal information support for street youth.
  • Replicating a pro bono program across Ontario to assist newcomers through the immigration and refugee process.
  • A theatrical production to educate Thunder Bay high school students about restorative justice.

Responsive Grants range from $5,000 to $100,000.
