Citizens for Public Justice, also known as the C.J.L. Foundation, is an "independent Canadian people's movement" which seeks to develop political, economic, educational and social policies and action progammes from a "Christian life perspective."

In 1980, Citizens For Public Justice published an edition of their newsletter, Political Service Bulletin, on the topic of energy. In it are outlined the positions taken by the three major political parties on energy. The positions were analyzed to determine whether or not they reflected new directions or simply alternative suggestions for pursuing the traditional materialist goals. Citizens for Public Justice favours "a restructuring of the economic system in such a way that it puts more emphasis on human growth and less on material growth." Although the material is now dated, it may be useful to compare the information in this issue to the current party positions.

Currently, Citizens For Public Justice is focusing its work on social-economic policy.
