Freedom - Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms

Educational resources

Freedom of expression is protected on the first page of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (section 2) to ensure that every person's thoughts, beliefs, and opinions can be expressed, regardless of how favourable, meaningful, controversial, unpopular, distasteful, or offensive they may be.  These protections, which are the primary building blocks of a psychologically healthy society, are essential to open and honest discourse that fosters progress while also embracing cultural diversity, human solidarity and dignity, and critical thinking for the impartial consideration and skeptical examination of ideas for their merits.
