Advancing justice through access, knowledge and understanding
The Manitoba Law Foundation is committed to advancing legal knowledge, fostering excellence within the legal profession and facilitating community understanding of the justice system. The Foundation funds programs and initiatives that promote and enhance these commitments.

The Foundation uses those funds to provide grants to organizations according to the purposes set out in the legislation, which are to encourage and promote:
- legal education
- legal research
- law reform
- legal aid services; and
- the development and maintenance of law libraries.
