The Law Foundation of British Columbia
1340 - 605 Robson Street
Vancouver, BC, V6B 5J3
Phone: (604) 687-2919 
E-mail: www.lawfoundationbc.org
Website: www.bccla.org

The B.C. Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) is the oldest and most active civil liberties group in Canada. We are a group of citizens who volunteer our energy and talents to fulfill our mandate: to preserve, defend, maintain and extend civil liberties and human rights in British Columbia and across Canada.

The BCCLA is a non-partisan, autonomous and charitable society.

Civil liberties are the rights and freedoms that all citizens enjoy in a democratic society. Citizens in a democracy are sovereign and the state is the instrument we use to govern ourselves. Our rights and freedoms flow from our sovereign status, and from the fact that we are subject to the laws we enact to regulate our own behaviour.

In today's democracy, our civil liberties may be threatened not only by the state, but also by powerful private organizations and employers. The B.C. Civil Liberties Association works to protect citizens from both government and private sector intrusions into our lives.

Some of the key issues we work on are:

  • privacy and access to information
  • freedom of speech
  • freedom of association
  • discrimination
  • due process
  • police rights and responsibilities
  • administrative decision-making
  • patients’ rights
  • prisoners’ rights
  • children’s rights
  • private offences
  • political rights

Our services integrate information, education, training, consultation, investigation, mediation, research and advocacy.

Together this integrated approach works to promote and strengthen human rights.

In delivering these services we often coordinate with other service providers to ensure the most effective allocation of resources. We also strive to work with all sectors when delivering services to ensure the broadest possible approach to the elimination of discrimination.
