How It Works
Submit your legal case for funding consideration
As a charitable organization, Freedoms Advocate is only able to take a selective amount of cases each year. To have your case considered, send us an email with your full name, address, province, and a brief description (maximum one page please) of the issue you are having with a government related legal matter.
We are unable to help individuals who have already retained legal counsel, or who are a member of a union. We do not handle criminal cases, family law, wills and estates, civil litigation or any other matter that does not relate to constitutional freedoms.
If you are represented by a union, we are likely unable to assist you.
Your submission of a case will be kept confidential but does not create a solicitor-client privilege.
How we select cases for funding
Our legal experts and management executive select and approve cases for funding based on our values of integrity, freedom of religion and belief, thought and expression, association and assembly, a free press, democracy, and life, liberty, and security. We value strong families, parental decision making in education, autonomy and mobility rights. We take cases with a strong likelihood of success, solid facts, and to advance our mission and maintain the goal of setting winning legal precedent.
