Tell the government that we need justice for the Quebec City Massacre

Sign the Petition at: http://chng.it/GTPPVd8z6p On November 26, the Quebec Court of Appeal found that section 745.51 of the Criminal Code is unconstitutional in the case of Bissonnette v The Queen. This case arose from the brutal Quebec City Mosque killings on January 29, 2017, which was the largest attack on a religious institution in Canadian history. This means that Alexandre Bissonnette would be eligible for parole in 25 years. For many of us, this is a very deeply troubling scenario to imagine. Our hearts break for the families of the victims. We believe ...

Tell Nityo Infotech that there should be no Islamophobia in our workplaces

"Please do not submit Muslim candidates for below position.” This is an excerpt from an email from a recruiter at Nityo Infotech, an IT company with offices in Canada, US and around the globe. Many in the Muslim community know that Islamophobia and discrimination in employment exists, but rarely do we see it stated this explicitly. We echo the calls by CAIR San Diego, CAIR New Jersey and others for disciplinary action against this individual employee. We also recognize that statements like this don’t materialize in a vacuum. This suggests a broader ...

Thank You Letter to Prime Minister Trudeau – No Fly List

On November 4th, 2020 we received great news of an important win for our community! The federal government’s announced that a redress system for travellers caught by ‘no-fly list’ errors will be coming this month. The announcement is a welcome step forward for Canadians mistakenly identified on the No-Fly List, and for their families and supporters who have worked tirelessly over many years to have this injustice corrected. The No-Fly List has long been critiqued for its false-flagging of innocent Canadians, including children, who share the same or ...

TELL DOUG FORD AND THE CONSERVATIVES THAT ISLAMOPHOBIA SHOULDN’T BE REWARDED

NCCM is deeply concerned by Premier Ford's decision to transform the Canada Christian College into a university. The President of the College, Charles McVety, has expressed deeply Islamophobic views inconsistent with the Ontario's Human Rights Code. In 2010 Christian broadcaster Christian Television Service removed McVety’s show, Word TV, after Canada’s broadcast industry watchdog ruled that various statements by McVety violated its broadcast codes. A complainant to Canadian Broadcast Standards Council (CBSC) identified fourteen programs between July 19, 2009 ...

Open Letter to the Prime Minister: Taking Action on White Supremacist Groups

This attack did not happen in isolation. This attack is one in a long series of a chain of horrifying attacks on racialized communities in Canada. Faith-based communities, as well as racialized communities, have faced ...

NCCM Policy Paper: CBSA Oversight Bill

Click here to read the full paper.  There are very few Canadian Muslims who can’t relate – or know someone who relates - to the challenge of “flying while Muslim”. We at the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) are very familiar with these challenges. From young Muslim six-year old kids appearing on Canada’s No Fly List, to Muslims facing additional screening purely on the basis of their religious backgrounds, to problems at the border based on where their parents were from, NCCM has heard countless stories over the last two decades about the challen...

Sign this Petition to Tell the Federal Government to Stand Against White Supremacist Groups

#DontLookAway Take Action now! Tell the Federal Government to stand against white supremacist and neo-nazi groups. Dear Prime Minister Trudeau: Muslim communities are still reeling from the devastating terrorist attack in Quebec in January 29, 2017, which claimed the lives of six Muslim men worshiping in their mosque and gravely injured many others. It was an unprecedented attack that left a Canadian place of worship – a sacred sanctuary – a scene of unimaginable carnage. Now, as a member of the Canadian community, Mohamed-Aslim Zafis, was ruthlessly ...

CSIS LIED TO CANADIANS AGAIN

The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) has reviewed two recent federal court decisions that show how the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) failed Canadians. CSIS failed to fulfill their candour obligations to the court, meaning that they did not tell the truth to Canadians under oath.  According to Justice O’Reilly’s decision released yesterday relating to the Awso Peshdary case, CSIS illegally gathered intelligence and then withheld evidence that would have assisted the accused on their case.  Justice O’Reilly’s decision ...
