Sheila Lund MacDonald, Executive Director of the Law Foundation of PEI, says the Community Sector Network will make it easier to get the word out about resources on PEI that non-profit organizations can access.
“The Law Foundation, which exists in every province in Canada, encourages and supports projects and programs to strengthen the ability of Canadians to access justice and legal knowledge,” says Sheila.
“We encourage innovative projects, perhaps things that have never been done before on PEI.”
It carries out its mandate by awarding grants annually such as:
- One-time project grants for single or multi-year projects. Continuous program grants such as those made available to the following:
- PEI Law libraries
- Community Legal Information Association
- Legal Aid Services
- Bar Admission Course
- Legal Education Coordinator
