About this grant

The Canadian Environmental Law Association provides legal aid, education and access to decision-making process in the Province of Ontario. With previous Mott Foundation support, the grantee has provided analysis and guidance for decision-makers and the public on Great Lakes issues, including water contaminants, watershed planning and drinking water protection.
