The Justice Centre is uniquely positioned to represent Canadians who have faced shocking and stressful intrusions on their freedom. Most Canadians cannot afford to pay for proper legal representation to defend their freedoms when violated by governments and by governmental authorities. As a public interest, non-partisan law firm and registered charity, the Justice Centre provides legal representation free of charge to protect the constitutional freedoms of all Canadians. Since our founding in 2010, we have secured more than 30 court victories and out-of-court settlements.
