The Charter of Rights and Freedoms: What is it?

The Charter of Rights and Freedoms, or the Charter, is a bill of rights that forms part of our Constitution. It was enacted in 1982, and guarantees civil rights to everyone in Canada from the actions of state actors. It ensures that the Government, and those that act on behalf of the Government, respect the rights of all Canadians. In addition to setting out what our rights are as Canadians, or people living in Canada, it also creates remedies for when state actors abuse those rights.
