The focus of the Justice Centre’s activities are as follows:

Individual Freedom: The Fundamental Freedoms afforded to each and every Canadian by section two of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (the Charter).  These freedoms are paramount and embody the very values comprising our democratic society.  They are:
Freedom of Religion and Conscience: The freedom of each and every individual or community, in public or private, to peacefully express their distinct religious beliefs through worship, observance, practice and teaching without censorship or limitation.  This includes the freedom to change your religion or to not follow any religion.  This also includes the freedom of each and every Canadian to hold or consider a fact, value, viewpoint or other thought independent from other individuals.

Freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression: The freedom to seek out an understanding of and peacefully express your thoughts, opinions and beliefs without censorship or limitation.  This includes freedom of the press and other media of communication.  Freedom of expression is the keystone of our democratic society.

Freedom of Peaceful Assembly: The freedom to come together and collectively express, promote, pursue and defend common interests.

Freedom of Association: The freedom to choose to live in a community, be part of an organization or associate with any individual based on your values, culture and other personal preferences.

Equality before the law: Section 15 of the Charter enumerates the human right held by each and every Canadian to be treated equally before and under the law, and to be afforded equal protection and benefit of the law without discrimination based on race, ancestry, ethnicity, age, gender or other such personal characteristics.  This right holds each and every Canadian subject to the same laws, and ensures that no individual or group shall receive special legal privileges.
