Budget 2021 announced $21.5 Million in funding to support the provision of culturally appropriate legal information and resources and to pilot legal advice services for racialized communities across Canada.
JPIP provides contribution funding for projects that support ensuring a fair, relevant and accessible Canadian justice system. JPIP supports activities that respond effectively to the changing conditions effecting Canadian justice policy. Priorities include access to justice, family violence, and emerging justice issues. The long-term goal of JPIP is to contribute to increasing access to the Canadian justice system and strengthening the Canadian legal framework.
This anticipatory call for proposals aims to support increased access to culturally appropriate and accessible legal information, supports and advice for racialized communities across Canada. This will support individuals and communities to increase their understanding of the law and their rights, how to exercise those rights in legal matters and to make informed decisions. This will empower individuals to be active participants in addressing their legal matters and to access the justice system meaningfully.
