CNR Legal Fund

$3,790 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 79 people in 11 months
Updated: 31 July 2018

We are working to establish naturism as a lawful activity and as a legal form of recreation.  We believe all Canadians should be free to practice contextually appropriate naturism without fear of criminal prosecution.

About us:  Calgary Nude Recreation was established in the belief that contextually appropriate social nudity can be a powerful tool for individuals to gain confidence, free themselves from body-shame, and allow a new connection with the self and others.  We strive to create spaces where nudity is normalized, empowering, and beneficial to our community.

In January 2018 Calgary Nude Recreation made national headlines after our second naked swim was shut down by threats of violence, including a bomb threat.  Since then, we have successfully (and peacefully) had over 6 events and our membership has continued to grow.

Legal Challenge:  Calgary Nude Recreation has applied for permits for activities on Crown Land, but has been repeatedly been denied permits for activities because our activities take place in the nude.  After speaking with a reputable law firm familiar with constitutional law, CNR has decided to move ahead with a legal opinion to determine our best options.

We are working to establish that practicing naturism is a lawful activity.  Everybody should be unhindered to enjoy nature in the most natural state, should they choose.

Funds: We need to raise money for a retainer fee that includes a legal opinion as to the best course of action.  The legal opinion will determine what that path forward looks like.

Additional funds will be needed for any challenge in court. The amount of money needed won’t be known until after the legal opinion has been completed. There will likely be other challenges to continue establishing that naturism is a lawful activity.

How you can help:  Please consider donating to our legal fund.  Every amount helps, even as little as $5.  Our challenges will go forward at a rate as determined by the amount of our funding.

Slow and Steady:  We want to do everything right for these legal challenges to help ensure we win and set precedent.  That means that we are intentionally choosing smaller goals with a high likeliness of succeeding.  We will continue to look for valid legal challenges as we advance our cause.
