Ontario’s nonprofit justice sector got stronger this week. Twenty of the province’s leading access to justice organizations received a Catalyst grant from The Law Foundation of Ontario.

Catalyst is the Foundation’s new granting program that offers a three-year cycle of core funding to nonprofit organizations that demonstrate they are working to advance access to justice in Ontario. Catalyst’s goal is to strengthen the nonprofit justice sector by helping to give organizations stability and the opportunity to innovate, evolve, and respond to emerging needs. At just over $5.8M per year, the inaugural Catalyst granting represents an investment of more than $17M over the three-year granting cycle into Ontario’s nonprofit justice sector.
