Innocence Canada is the only national non-governmental organization working to exonerate the wrongly convicted. While Innocence Canada benefits from the commitment of volunteer case reviewers who donate thousands of hours of time every year, the wrongly convicted and Innocence Canada require other forms of support in order to prove claims of innocence. These costs can include:
- Private investigators
- Forensic testing
- Expert opinions
- Witness interviews
- Court filing fees and expenses
- Travel costs to meet with the wrongly convicted in prisons across Canada
- Transcripts of proceedings
- Travel related to investigation and costs of case management
The Innocence Canada Foundation processes on-line donations via MiCharity, a secure online service that helps registered Canadian charities collect donations.
Tax receipts are sent to on-line donors immediately by email but sometimes end up in the junk mail folder.
