The maintenance of the Church Attacks Database is costly. If you are financially able, we humbly request that you add the CCRL in your Advent and yearend donations.
The CCRL is providing Canada’s only nationwide database that tracks and records attacks against our churches and other Catholic properties.
The CCRL has been working with media to highlight the unacceptable violence against Catholic churches across Canada in July and the lacklustre response from politicians and law enforcement to find and charge perpetrators, deterring further attacks.

The CCRL asks Friends and Supporters to Contact their MPs in Opposition to Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia Expansion with Bill C-7
It is the opinion of the CCRL that Bill C-7 is worse than the status quo of the euthanasia and assisted suicide regime in Canada. We ask our friends and supporters to contact their Members of Parliament, asking them to reject C-7 and the expansion of lethal injection eligibility, especially to Canadians suffering from mental illness.
