What we do

CCLA actively stands up to power by fighting against rights violations, abuse of police powers, inequality, and discrimination. We stand for freedom, equity, and a better future for all people in Canada. Through challenging the law and educating youth on their rights, we are able to effect systemic change in our communities.

Stand up to power with us and help us keep governments and those in authority accountable to the people they represent.
