In the aftermath of the unthinkable terrorist attack that took the lives of three generations of the Afzal family in London, Ontario, a unanimous consent motion was passed in the House of Commons that stated the following:
That, given that,
(i) Canada has been devastated over the last decade by repeated acts of violent Islamophobia, including but not exclusive to the Quebec City Mosque Attack, the IMO Mosque Attack, and the London Terror Attack,
(ii) Canada has been deeply affected by Islamophobia at a federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal level,
Le français suit.
NCCM Recommendations: National Summit on Islamophobia
More Muslims have been killed in targeted hate-attacks in Canada than any other G-7 country in the past 5 years because of Islamophobia.
That fact sunk in outside the London Muslim Mosque on June 8 of this year, when thousands of Londoners gathered in the aftermath of the terror attack that took the lives of four members of the Canadian Muslim community in an unthinkable act of Islamophobic violence. The thousands that gathered that day were there to show their solidarity, pray, and stand ...
Religious minorities in our federal prisons are suffering needlessly because they are not getting the spiritual and chaplaincy services they need.
The problem started in 2013, when the then Harper administration privatized the federal prison chaplaincy system by eliminating all 49 part-time chaplains and handing over all responsibilities to a for-profit company.
Those eliminated positions represented many chaplains serving minority faith prisoners who feel like their needs have been increasingly marginalized in the following years. Our new report, co-presented ...
On Wednesday, May 11, veteran journalist Shireen Abu Aqla was killed while wearing a press vest on assignment in the occupied West Bank. This attack on a journalist and their ability to report is a violation of international law.
The UN Special Rapporteur on Palestine has already described the incident as a ‘potential war crime’, echoing calls from hundreds of other politicians, organizations and community leaders demanding justice for Shireen Abu Aqla.
The death of Abu Aqla points to the immediate need for an impartial and thorough investigation by the ICC ...

Canada is failing to uphold human rights standards and principles while engaging in trade negotiations with India. Islamophobia has long been on the rise at an alarming rate in many Indian states.
On March 10 2022, Canada’s Minister of International Trade, Mary Ng, met with her counterpart, Minister Piyush Goyal, in New Delhi. The two discussed working towards an Early Progress Trade Agreement. Minister Goyal of the BJP is someone with known links to the RSS, India's main Hindu nationalist organization tied to acts of communal violence against India's Muslims and ...
On June 6, 2021, three generations of one family were killed in an Islamophobic terror attack in London, Ontario. In the aftermath of this unspeakable loss, Ontarians heard their political leaders make bold and unequivocal statements about eradicating Islamophobia and hate from their province. Now, we are asking them to take action.
The Our London Family Act (Bill 86), as proposed by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), is a way to take clear and reasonable action against Islamophobia in Canada. It was introduced by the Ontario NDP on February 23rd and ...
As the international community arrives in Beijing for the 2022 Winter Olympics, global attention on the games must not eclipse efforts by human rights defenders to focus international attention on China’s well-known human rights abuses.
Among these issues is Beijing’s ongoing mistreatment of the Uyghur minority in the Uyghur region of China, including the subjecting of interned individuals to forced labour. The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is calling on the Canadian government to ramp up efforts to ban the import of goods stemming from forced ...
