Thank you for sharing information about your situation with the Justice Centre’s Case Submissions Team. The  Justice Centre receives a very high number of requests for legal help.

Our legal team reviews every submission.  Given the high volume of requests we receive, we may not be able to provide an additional response to your request.

As a registered charity funded entirely by voluntary donations from Canadians (, the Justice Centre is only able to take on a fraction of the hundreds of cases that are submitted to us each year.

The Justice Centre’s mandate is to defend the constitutional rights of Canadians, particularly our fundamental freedoms guaranteed in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  The Charter only applies to the laws and actions of government.  We do not take cases against private entities or businesses or those involving family law, criminal law, landlord and tenant disputes, wills and estates, or class action lawsuits.

If we are able to offer advice or legal assistance, we will reply further to your request.

The Justice Centre is generally not able to provide legal assistance on an urgent basis.  If you need urgent legal assistance, you may need to separately retain the services of a lawyer while the Justice Centre determines whether it can take on your case.

We encourage you to keep informed about the Justice Centre’s work via our website, podcasts, columns and published reports, and subscribe to our twice a month newsletter, the Justice Update.

Thank you for reaching out to the Justice Centre and being interested in our work to defend Canadians’ fundamental freedoms.
