The Canadian Constitution and Charter of Rights and Freedoms

The Canadian Constitution is the supreme law of Canada, setting out the framework for the country's system of government. It consists of written documents, including the Constitution Act, 1867, outlining the division of powers between the federal and provincial governments, and the Constitution Act, 1982, including the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a fundamental part of the Canadian Constitution, guaranteeing rights and freedoms to all Canadians, including freedom of expression, religion, equality, and democratic rights. It also sets out the limitations on these rights and provides for justifiable infringements in certain circumstances.

Charter Challenges and the Importance of Constitutional Law

Charter challenges play a crucial role in protecting and advancing the rights and freedoms of Canadians. They allow individuals and organizations to challenge laws, regulations, or government actions that are alleged to be unconstitutional and infringe upon Charter rights. Charter challenges are often complex and require expert legal representation to navigate the intricacies of constitutional law and achieve the best outcomes.
