2016 ALF Annual Report

Thursday, October 13, 2016

The Alberta Law Foundation is pleased to announce that its 2016 Annual Report is now available. In the 2015-16 fiscal year, ALF-funded programs supported over 275,000 Albertans with legal advice, representation, education, information and referral. In total, 74 grants with an aggregate value of $16.9 million were allocated to organizations across the province, in addition to $3.3 million which was allocated to Legal Aid Alberta.

For over 40 years, the Alberta Law Foundation has been the recipient of interest which banks, credit unions, trust companies, and treasury branches pay on clients' funds held in lawyers' pooled trust accounts. These funds are made available to organizations which provide services in keeping with the Foundation’s objects of legal research, law libraries, public legal education, and direct legal services to vulnerable populations.
