The person most credited with creating the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is Pierre Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada from X to X, and X to X. The Canadian Minister o…f Justice at the time the Charter was enacted, Jean Chretien, is also given substantial credit. No doubt, they were ably assisted by legal counsel and civil service staff. In addition, the overall constitutional amendment that included the Charter was negotiated and agreed among the Premiers (legislative prime ministers) of Canada's ten provinces, in addition to Mr. Trudeau. Queen Elizabeth had a lot to do with the charter of rights, she had to sign the charter of rights and had to proof read it. I hope I helped :P

It is important because if it wasn't there, then Canada would be caos.Ithere are 8 keys. Fundamental freedoms, mobility rights, official languages of Canada, equality rights, …democratic rights, legal rights, minority language education rights and aboriginal rights and freedoms. without them we could still have slaves in our country and you could be sent to be either executed, made a slave of or imprisoned for whatever amount of time.
Good question! Former Canadian Prime Minister, John Diefenbaker, oversaw the . draughting of the Canadian Bill of Rights in the early 1960's. It was a document . that gave c…larity to the fundamental rights to be enjoyed by all Canadian citizens. . Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, desiring to leave his own legacy on rights, replaced the Bill of Rights with the Canadian Charter of Rights in 1982. This new bill has proved to be a thorn in the side of Parliament -- for it grants previously unknown power to the courts because some sections are vague and subject to interpretation that only the courts can settle. . The Bill of Rights functioned better than the Charter of Rights does today because it was less vague and less detailed. Canada would probably be better off today by reverting to the Bill of Rights.
Throughout the late 1970's, negotiated in the early 1980's, passed into law in 1982, and in effect in 1984.

None. The Charter applies to Canadian citizens. ==== The above answer is glaringly incorrect. First, many immigrants are also citizens. Second, the "Fundamental Freedoms…" in section 2 of the Charter are guaranteed to "everyone." Third, the "Democratic Rights" (voting, etc.) are restricted to citizens. Fourth, certain of the "Mobility Rights" in section 6 are guaranteed to permanent residents as well as to citizens. Fifth, the "Legal Rights" and "Equality Rights" (sections 7 to 15) are guaranteed to everyone. Sixth, the language ( i.e., French and English having equal status) rights apply to everyone. Seventh, minority language rights apply to citizens. Eighth, everyone has the right to seek redress through the courts for any violation of a right provided by the Charter.
