Canadian Rights in Quebec

CRITIQ is a Quebec based organization dedicated to the protection of all fundamental civil rights and liberties available to Quebec residents by our nation’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms and by the United Nations’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

CRITIQ is not a political party, nor does it aspire to be. Rather, it seeks to answer a recent call to leadership to put a stop to the economic demise of Montreal.


CRITIQ’s mission serves to realize a harmonious, prosperous and inclusive Quebec that is free from government-sponsored encroachment of civil liberties of its Francophone and non-Francophone population; to bring about a Quebec that is proud of the uniqueness and strength of its French, English and multi-cultural heritage.

In accordance with its founding principles, CRITIQ stands in opposition to any and all Quebec provincial or municipal legislation that violates the rights and freedoms afforded to all Quebecers by universally accepted human rights legislation.

As such, CRITIQ views The Quebec Charter of the French Language (Bill 101)—and the proposed Bill 14—as socially oppressive, economically damaging and fundamentally in breach of the basic right and freedom of Francophones and non-Francophones alike, to live, study and work in the language of their choice.

CRITIQ seeks to actively and formally support litigation to invalidate law that violates the fundamental rights and freedoms of Quebecers and seeks to rally the entire nation in support of this cause.
