How to Apply

The Law Foundation of Prince Edward Island (LFPEI) receives interest earned on lawyers’ trust accounts and makes these funds available to organizations engaged in activities which are in keeping with its mandate, with the ultimate goal of strengthening Islanders’ ability to access justice and legal knowledge.

We invite interested organizations to submit a project proposal that will help address one or more of the following legal needs:

  • Legal needs of seniors, newcomers, and low and modest income Islanders
  • Family law
  • Innovative approaches to legal aid
  • Public legal education (with a focus on plain language and priority consideration of the legal needs of the target groups listed above)
  • Technology (projects that explore or utilize technology in the delivery of legal services and/or public legal education)

Any organization or individual may apply to the Foundation, provided the project is law related and falls within the statutory objects and areas of encouragement as interpreted by the Board of Governors, who make all decisions on funding. An applicant can apply for more than one project, and a separate application must be submitted for each separate project. All grants are made subject to budgeted amounts and the availability of funds.
