Briefly summarize your dispute or case

Did the government body/agency in question give you any explanation for its actions against you? If so what was it?

Why do you think the government has taken these actions against you?

Is your case currently in litigation? If so, in what court or before what tribunal or agency?

If your case is already in litigation, what is the next important date or deadline, and what is scheduled for that date?

Have you consulted and/or retained a lawyer? If so, who is the lawyer, and what is his or her address and/or telephone number? Can we contact him or her if we want to learn more about your case?

What do you want the Canadian Constitution Foundation to do for you?

Due to limited time and resources, the CCF will only contact you if we have further interest in your case. This is not to say your case is unimportant but that we are unable to take it at this time.

Please do not follow up by contacting the CCF outside this form unless otherwise instructed to do so.
