Sex Work and the Charter
This detailed resource looks at the Canadian legal system and hierachy of laws from the perspective of launching a court case to prrotect the rights of sex workers. It discusses the Canadian law and your rights, the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, limits to the Charter, and how to challenge unconstitutional laws.
It notes, "The law can be a messy fit with advocacy for marginalized individuals and communities – many of our realities are not represented within the law and the law is often used to “protect” or “save” us in ways that can be harmful to us ... The value of using human rights law, such as the Charter, to advocate for our rights depends as much on our ability to use it strategically as it does on the norms and values that the Charter supports."
