The Bridging the Gaps initiative was established in January 2018 to help ascertain unmet legal needs in Alberta to guide the Foundation’s grant-making. Since then, the Foundation has led community-based research projects and hosted workshops and learning sessions for the Bridging the Gaps participants in person and virtually.
Over the last four years, Bridging the Gaps has become a community where justice stakeholders in Alberta can connect, share knowledge, and collaborate. There are currently 42 organizations in the group. All steps taken in the Bridging the Gaps initiative have been informed by feedback from the community.
