Welcome to Between the Lines, a public legal education initiative undertaken by three feminists who met while attending law school in Canada’s Capital. This is an effort to unravel legislation enacted by our governments and to make the legislation accessible to the communities impacted by the legislation.

As Tamil, Grenadian-Trinidadian and Indigenous women, we choose to begin with the new carding legislation since parts of these regulations come into force on July 1, 2016. We know many people who mobilized to bring the carding issue to the public discourse have spoken out against the regulations and we support these movements. We also strongly support the call to end carding, and ultimately, to end the continued policing and criminalization of our communities. The information here is simply a contribution to the many tools developed by communities to resist policing and to fight against criminalization.

The information found on this site is not legal advice and should not be treated as such. We want to make this information, free and accessible, for individuals or organizations who interact with criminalized communities. We especially note that we do not take responsibility with how the information on this website is used (or not used).
