International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG)



The International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG) is a coalition of Canadian civil society organizations established in the aftermath of the September 2001 terrorist attacks in the United States to monitor the impact of Canadian anti-terrorist and security legislation on the civil rights of Canadians, refugees and asylum seekers. The coalition brings together some 38 NGOs, unions, professional associations, faith groups, environmental organizations, human rights and civil liberties advocates, and groups representing immigrant and refugee communities in Canada.

The mandate of the ICLMG is to defend the civil liberties and human rights set out in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, federal and provincial laws (such as the Canadian Bill of Rights, the Canadian Human Rights Act, provincial Charters of Human Rights or Privacy legislation), and international human rights instruments (such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment).
