The Public Legal Education Association of Saskatchewan (PLEA), plea.org, was incorporated in 1980 as a non-profit, non-government organization that exists to educate, inform and empower through law-related education. The organization is funded by the Law Foundation of Saskatchewan, with additional funding from the Department of Justice Canada. Project and other forms of support come from Justice Canada, the Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice, the Law Society of Saskatchewan, the Canadian Bar Association, University of Saskatchewan College of Law, Legal Aid Saskatchewan, and the Saskatoon Public Library, as well as public libraries and regional colleges throughout the province.
