What is the ADCS?
ADCS stands for the ‘The Alliance for the Defence of Canadian Sovereignty’. We are a non-profit corporation registered with Corporations Canada.
The PURPOSE of ADCS is to defend Canada’s sovereignty and its people from the attempt of other countries to impose their legislation on Canada.
Who will we defend?
Innocent people like this frightened Canadian:
“Yesterday I thought I was a Canadian citizen, today I am called a ‘U.S. Person’.
The banks want to pass on my personal financial information and even my husband’s to the IRS – to force us to file IRS forms, pay tax and penalties, and transfer our Canadian-made retirement savings to a foreign country, just because of my place of birth.
I am furious because my own Government of Canada is actually HELPING the IRS do this, and now tells me that this is somehow a “good deal for Canadians”. How is this a good deal? Isn’t there some law against this? I am a CANADIAN! Can someone please help me?”
How we are helping – Our lawsuit:
Our lawsuit was originally filed on August 11, 2014 in Canadian Federal Court. We asked the Federal Court of Canada to kill the FATCA agreement between Canada and the United States that rounds up innocent Canadians and turns them over to a foreign government.
See the original Claims submitted by the Plaintiffs. The Claims describe some of the laws we believe are violated by the FATCA agreement.
Federal Court Justice MacTavish ruled against us and said that it is "important" to avoid consequences threatened by the U.S. But we say: Not at the expense of our Charter rights.
She tells us also that the subgroup of Canadian citizens affected by FATCA has only a "limited expectation of privacy" and that the FATCA IGA legislation does not "devalue [their] worth" or "send the message" that some of us "are less capable or less worthy of recognition as human beings or as members of Canadian society."
We don’t agree and Gwen and Kazia are now appealing the Federal Court ruling in Canada’s Court of Appeal.
For the appeal, the appellants have retained Vancouver-based lawyer Greg Delbigio and expect a decision from the Court of Appeal approximately next mid-year (2020).
How you can help:
The lawsuit costs a lot of money – likely three different courts will be involved – and the Government of Canada has unlimited funds to fight us every inch of the way using your tax dollars.

Please spread the word and DONATE today, and please – keep donating. An accounting of all monies received and expended will be provided to Corporations Canada and posted on this website. ADCS is a non-profit organization (Corporation # 882779-6). The ADCS board members and the appellants take not a penny for their services.
