The CCP offers financial support to Canadians in three areas:

  • Development of test cases that have the potential to assert and clarify rights covered by the Program, in order to support access to the courts;

  • Test case litigation in order to support Canadians in presenting their views to the courts as well as facilitate court decisions on novel issues; and

  • Legal interventions for those wishing to make arguments in test cases that are broader or have a different focus than the ones presented by the Parties to the case, with a view to clarifying rights.
