Modernizing the Criminal Code

Min. Wilson-Raybould makes an announcement on updating the Criminal Code to respect the #Charter

Posted by Department of Justice Canada on Wednesday, March 8, 2017

The Government of Canada is committed to ensuring that our criminal justice system protects Canadians, holds offenders to account, meets the highest standards of equity and fairness, shows compassion to victims, and upholds the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. That is why we are proposing changes to remove or amend unconstitutional provisions from the Criminal Code.

On March 8th, I was proud to take part in this announcement as Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada.
