Civil Liberties 101

Civil Liberties 101 is an animated educational video series which provides an informative and engaging way to learn more about the rights and freedoms that are part of the Canadian Constitution.

Civil liberties are individual rights that have been established by law to protect citizens from governmental overreach and interference. During the pandemic, Canadians experienced grave infringements by the government of their basic rights and freedoms through lockdowns, mandates and public policy responses. This ongoing educational series is an effort to better educate Canadians about their inalienable rights, civil liberties and freedoms.
