Description:
Association in Defence of the Wrongly Convicted or AIDWYC, is a Toronto based non-profit organization founded in 1993 that is dedicated to the prevention of wrongful convictions and the reversal of cases that have already occurred. It is the direct successor to the Justice for Guy Paul Morin Committee, a grass-roots, community-based organization that supported Guy Paul Morin following his wrongful conviction. For many years the AIDWYC was headed by Rubin "Hurricane" Carter who had himself been convicted in the United States.

In early 2008, the AIDWYC took up the case of Anthony Hanemaayer, who had been convicted of a sexual assault in 1989 that serial rapist and killer Paul Bernardo later confessed to. Hanemaayer was exonerated by the Court of Appeal for Ontario on June 25, 2008.
