The Law Foundation of British Columbia
1340 - 605 Robson Street
Vancouver, BC, V6B 5J3

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
  • patientsí rights
  • prisonersí rights
  • childrenís rights
  • private offences
  • political rights

Fax: (604) 875-9227
TTY: 604-875-8835
E-mail: [email protected]
Website: http://www.disabilityalliancebc.org/

The BC Coalition of People with Disabilities was founded upon the belief that:

  • people with disabilities want and are entitled to equal opportunities in all the activities and privileges that other Canadians take for granted
  • full inclusion of people with disabilities within our communities is a fundamental necessity for a diverse, productive and economically vibrant social environment
  • people with disabilities have the right to expect equality, fair treatment and respect.

Because of these beliefs, the purposes of the BC Coalition of People with Disabilities are:

  • to use education, advocacy and special projects to work toward the dissolution of the physical, attitudinal and systemic barriers in our society that deny us equal opportunities
  • to provide a strong coherent voice for the cross-disability communities in B.C.
  • to share information with and support other self-help disability organizations with common goals, and
  • to carry out our mission and projects within a self-help model
