National Security


Public Safety Canada and the Department of Justice Canada are consulting Canadians on Canada's national security laws and policies to ensure they reflect the rights, values and freedoms of Canadians. This engagement opened on September 8, 2016. Consultation activities will end on December 1, 2016.

The Department of Justice works with other departments and agencies to protect national security and combat terrorism by providing legal advice to the Government and developing policy and laws on national security issues.
