Your donation protects our health and our environment​.

The CELA Foundation (formerly the Resource Library for the Environment and the Law) supports CELA’s work on environmental law and justice issues.

Your tax-creditable donation to the CELA Foundation will ensure that CELA can continue to provide research and educational support for environmental law reform, and legal assistance to low-income communities who are adversely – and disproportionately – affected by environmental issues.

We need your support. Environmental laws are under attack in Ontario. The Ontario legal aid system – of which CELA is a part – has suffered funding cuts and is threatened with more. We can’t afford to let 50 years of good work to protect our environment and health be eroded.

Your donation is critical to ensure that CELA can protect our future.

Your gift will:

  • Support the next generation of skilled environmental justice advocates by providing vital articling opportunities.
  • Give northern, remote and indigenous communities equitable access to environmental defence and advocacy.
  • Enable communities to participate, with expert assistance, in environmental decisions and legal issues that profoundly affect their health and environment.
  • Provide educational and research service that give environment lawyers and advocates the tools they need to succeed in a changing environment.
