Field Law - Edmonton Calgary Yellowknife

Home > Community Involvement

One of the core values of our Firm is to give back to the communities in which we work and live.  As a result Field Law supports many community and charitable initiatives.

This year, we’re pleased to announce the Field Law Community Fund Program which provides an additional $75,000 annually to local projects and/or organizations. Through a combination of community online voting and deliberation by local judging panels, finalists will be announced and awards between $1,000 and $30,000 will be allocated. Community individuals and/or groups in and around Calgary, Edmonton and Yellowknife are eligible to apply for funds. Visit the Field Law Community Fund Program website for more information on how you can apply to get funding for your community ideas.

Additionally, as a Firm we are particularly active in the areas of education and health given our very significant legal practices in these areas.   We are also proud supporters of the arts helping to build a vibrant cultural life in our communities.  Our Firm also has a long and proud history of working to ensure a strong legal profession that functions in the public interest.
