Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms


Staff member
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is part of Canada’s Constitution and protects you from the moment you arrive in Canada. It sets out the values that Canadians live by and describes the kinds of personal human rights and freedoms we can expect in this country. Some of those rights and freedoms include:
  • The right to life, liberty and personal security
  • Freedom of conscience and religion
  • Freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media
  • Freedom to hold peaceful meetings
  • Freedom to join groups
  • Protection from unreasonable search or seizure and unjustified detainment and imprisonment
  • The right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty
  • The right to retain and instruct counsel (a lawyer) without delay
  • The right to a fair trial, through due process of law
  • The right to equal protection and benefit under the law, without discrimination
Consider before posting:
  • Do not post the same thing in multiple places.
  • No personal contact and/or non-English phrase is allowed.
  • Always post in a relevant thread or open a new one.
  • Better to use the reactions in a post to congratulate/thank.
