Over the years, the EDRF has distributed more than $5 million in grants to almost 1000 First Nations, individuals and community groups from every region of the province. This unique legal aid program has helped to build the capacity of communities to engage with the law effectively on environmental issues, winning major environmental victories and giving a voice to people who otherwise would not have been heard. The EDRF is made possible by funding from The Law Foundation of British Columbia.
Join us for a night of exciting updates, storytelling and celebration as we move towards the next chapter in our work providing legal aid to empower communities and strengthen environmental protection in British Columbia.
Mark your calendars for November 7th, and stay tuned for more details to come!
