Have you been targeted?

The International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group wants to hear from anyone who has been targeted by the U.S. or Canadian “no-fly” list, subjected to long secondary interrogations at borders, been barred from entering the U.S. or detained and arrested in the U.S.

The International Civil Liberties Monitoring Group (ICLMG) and its partners have set up this research project on the surveillance of travellers because we need more knowledge to inform our work promoting and defending civil liberties and human rights.

The project aims to document the number of people who believe they have been mistakenly or unfairly targeted, and the nature of the incident.

The purpose of the project is to investigate and generate better public understanding of the practices, programs and systems used to screen travellers at Canadian airports and at the Canada-U.S. border crossings in order to assess the scope and depth of their concrete impacts on civil liberties, privacy rights and mobility rights.

The research project is an initiative of the 38-member ICLMG in partnership with:

  • British Columbia Civil Liberties Association
  • Canadian Association of University Teachers
  • Canadian Labour Congress
  • Canadian Union of Public Employees
  • Ligue des droits et libertés (Québec)
  • Polaris Institute

We will not divulge the identity of anyone who agrees to share his or her story with us unless explicit consent is given.
