Thanks to your contributions and the support and donations of many other Charter Challenge champions, we have reached another important milestone in our fundraising efforts. We have surpassed our $30,000 goal for the drafting of the factum (our written argument of the case). This is excellent news, and sets us up for success in the coming months!
Here’s a reminder on the status of the case:
- The case was filed with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in October 2019.
- We served the government with affidavits and an evidence package in May 2021.
- Government affidavits were received in late Fall 2022 and are currently being reviewed.
- Court date was confirmed. The case will be heard September 25 - 27, 2023.
We will have more to share next week on the government’s evidence and our current work in reviewing and preparing response evidence.
In the meantime, we’re pleased to share that we are planning a Charter Challenge donor webinar for early 2023 with the Charter Challenge team and lawyer, Nicolas Rouleau. Stay tuned for details on this exciting event!
As well, we are kicking off the next phase of fundraising which will be focused on raising $25,000 to cover the costs of presenting our case in court.
Thank you for your continued support.
