The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects a number of rights and freedoms, including freedom of expression and the right to equality. It forms part of our Constitution – the highest law in all of Canada – and is one of our country’s greatest accomplishments.
Every year on April 17, we celebrate the anniversary of the Charter which was signed in 1982.
