Canadian Civil Liberties Association

The Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) is Canada’s national human rights and fundamental freedoms organization, fighting for human rights and fundamental freedoms since 1964.  CCLA intervenes in Canadian courts, testifies before legislatures, advocates through all media, and engages in activism, education, and outreach across Canada for dignity and fundamental rights for all people in Canada.  We work to actively fight against injustice, such as racial profiling by police, privacy invasions by government, prolonged solitary confinement, abortion access restrictions, unfairness in the criminal system, and restrictions on freedom of expression. Along with the American Civil Liberties Union, CCLA is a member of INCLO, a network of human rights organizations around the world.
