What We Do
Whether at major events, in the media, or through public advocacy campaigns, we engage with citizens to support democratic action and dialogue.
Through our foundation, the Canadian Civil Liberties Education Trust, we bring important issues into Canadian classrooms and communities.
As a watchdog for civil liberties, we use our network to monitor and report on current issues—both locally and at the international level.
We partner with law firms and the academic community to enable and inform our advocacy work through essential research.
Since the 1960s we’ve defended civil liberties through high-impact legal action and intervention, including at the Supreme Court of Canada.
