Grants to Prince Edward Island organizations and individuals for activities that strengthen the ability of citizens to access justice and legal knowledge. Applicants requesting more than $15,000 should contact program staff prior to applying. Funding is intended for projects that address the legal needs of underserved populations and increase access to legal education. While the project might be larger in geographic scope/impact, a direct benefit to those living on Prince Edward Island must be demonstrated.

Eligible programs are those that will address one or more of the following legal needs: 

  • Legal needs of seniors, newcomers and low income Islanders and other vulnerable groups
  • Innovative approaches to enhance access to justice
  • Public legal education that is practical, relevant and accessible
  • Technology, specifically projects that explore or use technology, that enhances the delivery of legal services and/or public legal education

The Law Foundation of PEI (LFPEI) encourages projects that demonstrate:

  • Consistency with the Law Foundation’s mandate objectives, vision, mission, and/or strategic priorities;
  • Whether there is a need for the project or program;
  • Involvement of, and potential benefits to, residents of Prince Edward Island;
  • Collaboration between organizations at a local, regional, or national level;
  • Sustainability of the project or program;
  • Value for money; and
  • Availability of alternative and/or matching or other funding.

While each application will be carefully considered, the Law Foundation of PEI may give priority to projects within its mandate that demonstrate collaboration with other organizations and where shared costs have been negotiated. As part of your application, you should highlight any collaborative agreements/partnerships and/or any shared funding agreements that are in place.

- Commercial (for profit) ventures.
