Law for the Future Fund (LFFF)

Established in 1984, the Law for the Future Fund (LFFF) provides financial support for Canadian research projects of national interest that are of benefit to the general public.

Since its foundation, the Law for the Future Fund has helped finance more than 145 innovative and timely research projects. They include issues such as the recognition of environmental rights, access to justice in civil and family matters, prostitution laws and women's equality rights, the simplification of basic principles of human rights, and ways to make legal organizations more accessible to persons with disabilities.

The Board of Directors meets two times per year to oversee the operation of the Fund and to consider fundraising issues. To date, the total assistance granted by the LFFF is well over $3 million. The deadline for applications is the 1st of May each year.
