The Rt. Hon. Beverley McLachlin Access to Justice Fund (the McLachlin Fund) is pleased to announce that it has awarded seven grants totalling $543,500 through its 2022 funding call.
The seven funded projects and programs will contribute to increased access to civil and family justice in different regions across Canada.
Applications were selected based on their overall strength and fit with funding priorities, including potential for the work to be scaled up or replicated to enhance access to justice in other regions. In addition, assessment of applications took into consideration the funding landscape for access to justice initiatives across Canada, prioritizing the funding of strong proposals from under-represented and under-resourced regions.
For a description of grant recipients and funded projects from the 2022 funding call, please see https://mclachlin.ca/our-work.
The McLachlin Fund is grateful to all the applicants and the work they do in support of access to justice.
The McLachlin Fund’s Governing Council thanks the members of the national Review Committee for their work and the Vancouver Foundation for hosting the McLachlin Fund.
