Canadian Civil Liberties Association

Get the word out - share Canadians' experiences of discrimination with your friends and family.

Sign our petition! Tell our governments we need human rights and privacy protection for employees, legislative prohibitions on the disclosure of non-conviction information, and a centralized screening mechanism for the vulnerable sector.

Write to your local police service. Ask them if they are one of the ones that releases non-conviction records (if they are an RCMP detachment, or a police service in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta or Manitoba, chances are they do). Tell them you want them to stop releasing this information - we'll help get you started with a template email.

Tell your local businesses, volunteer agencies and educational institutions to implement rights-respecting hiring and screening practices. Show them our best practice guide and other resources.
