However, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is providing Canadians with the intellectual ammunition they need to hold university and student union leadership accountable when they unfairly and unlawfully punish students, faculty and guests on campus simply for holding controversial views.
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS!
CampusFreedomIndex.ca enables students, professors and concerned citizens to take action and fight back against campus censorship. Our Resisting Censorship on Campus brochure explains the legal basis for students’ free speech rights on campus, and the processes by which students can assert their legal rights in the face of censorship by their university or student union. This resource also encourages students to contact the Justice Centre for pro bono legal advice and assistance. Take a look at the Resisting Censorship on Campus brochure here.

BUILD A FREE SPEECH WALL
For many years, the Justice Centre has been partnering with students across Canada to build campus free speech walls: whiteboard displays that allow students to write down and share their thoughts and questions as an exercise of their free expression rights. The wall events provide an open forum to educate students about the importance of free speech at Canadian universities. Recently the Justice Centre put a new twist on the idea by rolling giant beach balls onto campus and encouraging students to write on the ball to exercise their free speech rights.
If you would like to host a free speech wall or free speech ball event at your campus, contact the Justice Centre to inquire about sponsorship!
