“The main reason HSLDA membership is important is to help ensure freedom of homeschooling in Canada. You and I may never come into a legal battle, but those who do need to be represented and the results of those cases ultimately will affect future rights to homeschool. It’s a small amount to pay, but if you think on the large scale it has great effect. Not to mention the benefits of the research and resources they offer”

As an HSLDA Canada member, you have access to on-call lawyers when you’re facing a legal issue or when your right to educate your child is challenged by authorities. While our mandate is homeschool-focused, our lawyers also have expertise in non-educational family and child protection matters that can potentially impact your homeschool. It is essential that you contact HSLDA immediately for advice if your family is dealing with a crisis– even if that situation is not directly homeschool related. The earlier you get in touch with us for legal advice, the better we can assist!
If you are an HSLDA Canada member with an emergency, call our office and follow the prompts to leave a confidential voicemail. We will connect you with a lawyer immediately.
