The Canadian Environmental Law Foundation is the charitable arm of Canadian Environmental Law Association (CELA). The Foundation was established in 1993 and supports CELA’s research and education work on environmental law and justice issues.
A key initiative of the Foundation is the Canadian Environmental Law Collections, an extensive library of online and printed resources that document Canada’s environmental law and policy history. The Foundation also supports ongoing education and outreach efforts to promote public participation in environmental decision-making, and the Access to Justice for Northern Communities Initiative. An important education initiative of the Foundation is support for CELA’s articling student program, training the next generation of environmental advocates.
