FACL has submitted its final report to the Law Foundation of Ontario on the Bridge the Gap project.
The Project resulted in the creation of a series of multilingual videos that FACL wrote, produced and distributed. The objective of the Project is to educate the general public and specific ethnic groups on the resources available in particular areas of law, specifically, youth criminal justice, human rights and immigration. FACL translated each video module into six Asian languages – Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese, Korean, Tagalog and Punjabi. Through the work of researchers, voice talent and producers, FACL produced 84 video modules and completed the Project well under budget.
FACL member, Jason Tam, spearheaded the project, with funding from the Law Foundation of Ontario. FACL is grateful to Jason and to all the volunteers who generously gave their time to make the Project a success.
The videos can be accessed on FACL’s website at http://facl.ca/resources/bridge-the-gap/.
