The Manitoba Association for Rights and Liberties (MARL) is a non-profit, non-government, human rights and civil liberties organization. Incorporated in 1978, MARL seeks to promote respect for and observance of fundamental human rights and civil liberties, and to defend, extend and foster the recognition of these rights and liberties in the Province of Manitoba.

MARL develops policy on the basis of democratic norms and consensus. The fundamental basis for its policies are enshrined within the United Nations’ Declaration of Human Rights, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Canadian Constitution, the Manitoba Human Rights Act and other international covenants to which Canada is a signatory. Other provincial and federal edicts as well as MARL Board resolutions play appropriate roles in that regard. MARL’s function is separate from, yet complementary to, the services provided by the Manitoba Human Rights Commission.
