On April 17, 1982 Queen Elizabeth II signed the Canada Act in Ottawa giving Canada control over its Constitution and guaranteeing the rights and freedoms of its new Charter, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms / La Charte Canadienne des droits et libertés. The Charter forms part of the Canadian Constitution – the highest law in all of Canada – and is one of the country’s greatest accomplishments.

The Charter protects a number of rights and freedoms, including freedom of expression and the right to equality, essential to keeping Canada a free and democratic society, and is a powerful force for progress, protection, compassion and fairness.

Furthermore, the Charter affirms that Canada is a multicultural country and that the Charter must always be read and understood with this in mind. It also protects the rights of Indigenous people in Canada (First Nation, Inuit, and Métis). Section 35 of the Constitution, which is separate from the Charter, recognizes and affirms Aboriginal peoples and the treaty rights of Aboriginal peoples.

The anniversary of the Charter is celebrated every year on April 17.


Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 19in x 27.5in. Machine wash at 110 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your Tea Towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
