Answer

The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms is a law, so therefore the McGill Guide rules for citing Canadian legal materials apply. Please see below for sample citations, and as per the McGill Guide rules, the in-text citations should appear in footnotes. For more information, please see Canadian Statutes, Cases, and Legislation

Citation:

1Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Part I of the Constitution Act, 1982, being Schedule B to the Canada Act 1982 (UK), 1982, c 11.

Citation with pinpoint (e.g., "s 8"):

1Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, s 8, Part I of the Constitution Act, 1982, being Schedule B to theCanada Act 1982 (UK), 1982, c 11.
