We couldn't pursue our mission to increase access to justice in BC without the generous support of our community partners, funders and donors. We extend our sincere appreciation to our many partners, institutional funders, and several thousand individual donors who make our work possible.
Our major funders include the Law Foundation of BC, the Law Society of BC, the Province of BC and the City of Vancouver. We also receive generous donations from many corporate and individual donors.
The Law Foundation of BC is a non-profit foundation created by legislation in 1969 to receive and distribute the interest on clients' funds held in lawyers' pooled trust accounts maintained in financial institutions. The Legal Profession Act directs the Law Foundation to distribute these funds in five areas: legal education; legal research; legal aid; law reform; and law libraries.
The Law Society of BC regulates the province's legal profession, protecting the public interest in the administration of justice by setting and enforcing standards of professional conduct for lawyers. It also brings a voice to issues affecting the justice system and the delivery of legal services.
The Government of BC is made up of ministries, agencies and Crown corporations. Access Pro Bono receives yearly funding from the Community Gaming Grants Branch, and collaborates with the Court Services Branch and the Ministry of Attorney General.
Bordered by the Coast Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean, Vancouver is recognized as one of the world’s most livable cities with one of the smallest carbon footprints of any major city in North America. The City of Vancouver is renowned for its innovative programs in the areas of sustainability, accessibility and inclusivity.
