Rights and
Liberties

In Canada, inmates awaiting trial or serving prison sentences retain many of their rights, such as the right to be free from inhumane treatment, a limited right to liberty, and a right to have their security rating determined in a fair manner. Despite the law on that issue, prison officials breach inmates’ rights with surprising regularity. Inmates can take action when that occurs by filing a civil lawsuit, filing complaints against the involved people, or filing habeas corpus to have their conditions of imprisonment reviewed by a court. We have extensive experience addressing inmate rights in court, and we can help you determine your options and take action.
