The Canadian Charter Turns 35

Why does it matter?

Did you know that the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects and guarantees the basic rights and freedoms for everyone in Canada?

In 1982, Canada gained control over its Constitution and adopted the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Join us for a week of learning and celebration to mark this notable anniversary. Don’t forget to take home a copy. The Charter text will be available free of charge in English, French and other languages.
