    The Charter has improved everyone's ability to participate in society. It has given important meaning to equality rights and the protection of rights. The Charter has gone beyond the International Declaration of Human Rights and the Bill of Rights. It looks beyond what a law says - it looks at how the law affects a person. Courts have now accepted that for real equality, different people must sometimes be treated differently.

    Canada founded on two official languages. The French and English language and education rights in the Charter protect our nations heritage. The multicultural character of Canadian people is formally recognized as a part of your national identity. The Charter cannot be used to take away rights of Aboriginal peoples.

    the rights and freedoms can only be restricted by reasonable limits demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society (see section 1, Guarantee of Rights and Freedoms). This important feature of our Charter has been used as a model internationally. Countries such as Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Uganda, the United Kingdom and Zimbabwe have looked to Canadian Charter decisions when applying their Constitutions.
