Law for the Future Fund

CBA Law for the Future FundEstablished in 1984, the Law for the Future Fund (LFFF) provides financial support for innovative Canadian research projects in the field of law.

Since its foundation, the LFFF has helped finance more than 185 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 a minimum of 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 over $3.9 million. The annual granting budget is approximately $200,000, which typically results in grants for 8-12 organizations in each funding cycle.  For more information on previous grants, please visit the Grants Awarded page.
