International Network of Civil Liberties Organizations

CCLA is a non-partisan, national, non-profit non-governmental organisation that has been at the forefront of protecting fundamental freedoms and democratic life in Canada since 1964. CCLA was constituted to promote respect for and observance of fundamental human rights and civil liberties and to defend and foster the recognition of those rights and liberties. CCLA’s major objectives include the promotion and legal protection of individual freedom and dignity against unreasonable invasion by public authority, and compliance with Canadian constitutional and international legal obligations within Canadian jurisdictions.

It has been a guardian of liberty, working in courts, legislatures, and communities to defend and preserve the individual rights and liberties that the Constitution and the laws of the United States guarantee everyone in this country.
