WE PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS
At Valour Legal Action Centre, we cherish the freedoms for which the Canadian Armed Forces fought for by putting the power of the Law and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms back into the hands of the people who wore the uniform.
Valour Legal Action Centre democratizes the law by arming our members with the right to choose the legal battles our military and constitutional team wage against suppression. Valour Legal Action Centre will empower you, the people, with the legal tools you deserve to deeply understand, celebrate, and, when necessary, defend your rights.

Catherine Christensen, Barrister & Solicitor, is the owner and founder of Valour Law. Having established her private firm in 2015 in St. Albert, Alberta, Catherine has brought a wealth of life experience to her law practice that gives her an insight into the realities and solutions twisted up in any legal issue. Catherine mainly practices for members of the Canadian Armed Forces.
When she completed her Masters Degree at Virginia’s College of William & Mary in Historical Archeology in 2003, Catherine wouldn’t ever have had any inkling that her trajectory would lead her to where she is today. Already a Registered Nurse, she worked in this role while completing her Archeology degree. A serious injury during a patient life-threatening emergency ended her 22-year career in that field.
During her time as a student of law at the University of Alberta, she took an interest in military law and researched the use of social media by members of the Canadian Armed Forces. Completing her law degree, Catherine looked back to her clinical medicine background and did her independent research on the civil liability regarding informed consent of health care providers prescribing addictive medications to patients.
Already providing educational resources for legal nurse consultants from 2007 onward (and while working on her law degree), Catherine provided advice and strategies for legal nurses, acting as a liaison between the legal and healthcare communities. Her work spanned the areas of personal injury, product liability, medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, toxic torts, risk management, medical professional licensure investigation, and criminal law.
Catherine’s clients at both Valour Law and Valour Legal Action Centre appreciate her open mind, quick wit and no-nonsense, non-judgmental approach. She is known as a strong advocate for her clients in Court and up the Chain of Command when it is needed to defend those who have worn the uniform.
Seeing a need for energetic, nonprofit work in the world of military and veterans who deserve fair and equitable representation, we formed our organization to provide sensible legal solutions. We provide advocacy for issues specific to military service. We are putting the power of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the laws of Canada back into the hands of those who swore to protect them by wearing the uniform. This is an amazing community!
