The Law Foundation of Prince Edward Island announced its grant funding for 2018 recently. Among the recipients are the PEI Hard of Hearing Association and the Cooper Institute.   

Gary Scales, Chair of the Law Foundation, explains that, “The hard of hearing project promotes ways to improve communications with clients requiring legal services who have hearing difficulty.” He noted that this initiative has had very positive feedback to date. Scales went on to say that, “Funding provided to the Cooper Institute will go towards developing multi-language legal information resources for migrant workers and their employers.” 

The Foundation also granted over $165,000 this year to support PEI’s provincial law library services and legal information resources, the Community Legal Information Association, the bar admissions program and legal education scholarships.  

Projects completed in 2017 included a parenting coordination and family arbitration pilot project and the development of a family violence prevention education video geared to newcomers. 

The deadline for applications for projects set to begin in 2019 is September 10.

The Foundation encourages innovative ideas that advance legal knowledge and promote access to justice on Prince Edward Island. “We are happy to discuss our funding program and encourage interested organizations to visit out webpage and contact us with any questions.” Scales said.
