I came across this funding opportunity and thought I would share it. Seems like the Fund is getting close to $10 million CAD! I am pasting some of the key info below (along with text that resonated with me ,) but you can find the full post here.

"On Sept. 10, 2019, the Beverley McLachlin Access to Justice Fund was launched. The fund’s aim is to provide financing for innovative approaches to improving access to civil and family justice. Through an application process the Fund will allow individuals and organizations to explore, test, measure and grow good ideas that advance our progress. We will begin receiving applications next year, with a transparent and publicly available application process. … "Increasingly, we are recognizing that the response to the access to justice crisis in Canada is a shared responsibility, requiring a multifaceted approach. While governments, courts and lawyers have significant roles to play, they are not the only actors on the stage. And, more importantly, they are not the only actors with good ideas about access to justice. … “However, the work is not easy. Too often, efforts to improve access to justice lack adequate and sustained funding. They lurch from crisis to crisis and find themselves unable to pursue sustained projects — projects that could make a great difference to the lives of individuals. The Fund announced on Sept. 10 will help alleviate these problems and allow individuals and organizations dedicated to better justice attain their goals.”
