Historically NAWL’s operations and work have been supported by public funding primarily from the federal government, membership fees, and funds received from foundations, individuals and other sources from time to time. At the request of the Trust, NAWL also delivers activities funded by charitable donations made to the Trust.
In 1983, the National Association of Women and the Law Charitable Trust for Research and Education (the NAWL Trust) was established to complement NAWL’s advocacy work. A registered charity, the NAWL Trust’s mandate includes undertaking research and education on legal issues concerning all aspects of the social, economic and political life of Canadian women. It assists in the protection of women’s civil rights and liberties by charitable means, as well as in the relief of poverty.
The NAWL Trust is a registered charity and relies solely on the generous donations of individuals and grants to fund its work. Charitable tax receipting is available.

When NAWL was defunded in 2006 by the (then) federal government, all staff were laid off and the office was closed. More than a decade later, through the hard work of NAWL’s dedicated National Steering Committee, NAWL received a multi-year grant and operations fully resumed in 2017. Help keep our doors open to continue advancing feminist law reform in Canada. Your support will help us with our day-to-day operational costs to continue our feminist law reform and advocacy.support our work
