The Law Foundation of Ontario was established in 1974 under the Law Society Act. The Foundation receives and uses the interest on lawyers’ and paralegals’ mixed trust accounts to support legal education, legal research, legal aid, and law libraries in Ontario. It does this through grant-making to non-profits and providing funds to Legal Aid Ontario.  A priority for the Foundation is to pay particular attention to groups who have experienced injustice or inequity – past or current – and those who have experienced exclusion or barriers in society.  The Foundation also administers the Class Proceedings Fund, which provides cost assistance in class actions. The Foundation is governed by a five-member Board of Trustees appointed by the Law Society of Ontario and by the Attorney General of Ontario.

The Foundation is an inclusive employer. We respect equity, inclusion, diversity and anti-racism. We are dedicated to creating a workplace reflective of the community we serve and welcome applications from diverse and equity-deserving groups. Accommodation, if required, will be provided throughout the hiring process in accordance with the Human Rights Code.
