What We Do
Freedoms Advocate is an ethical, registered charitable organization based in Alberta, Canada. We are not affiliated with any other groups or organizations.
We fund legal cases at all levels of government, across all of Canada, where people of principle must stand up for their rights and freedoms from increasingly authoritarian policies and legislation.
We accept no government funding for our vital work. Instead we accept donations from concerned Canadians who want to support our work and efforts to maintain and protect the liberty and constitutional freedoms of Canadians.
We advance our mandate by promoting public awareness and engagement in the democratic process. We provide education and legal support on issues of fundamental importance to the constitutional rights of Canadians.
What We Cannot Do
We do not take on situations involving private individuals and businesses, as only government entitities are subject to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
We are also unable to represent cases of family law, landlord-tenant disputes, consumer disputes, employee relations, divorce, wills and estates, and also do not handle criminal cases unless the case arises out of the exercise of constitutional rights such as protest, freedom of assembly, free speech, freedom of religion, etc.
An Advocate For You
If it is important to you that individuals have the right to freedom of expression so they can share their opinions openly, the Freedoms Advocate is for you.
If it is important to you that individuals have the right to freedom of religion, so they can hold and disseminate their beliefs, the Freedoms Advocate is for you.
If it is important to you that individuals are not punished in workplaces or on college campuses because they share “incorrect” beliefs or opinions, the Freedoms Advocate is for you.
If it is important to you that government is prohibited from compelling your speech, telling you what you can and cannot say, the Freedoms Advocate is for you.
