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 ...
Urge the government to support victims of hate crimes
As we approach the National Day of Remembrance of the Quebec City Mosque Attack and Action Against Islamophobia, we remember.
We remember the victims and survivors and what many of their loved ones continue to go through. We remember the long and complicated journey to healing for those targeted by Islamophobia.
Today, we ask you to join us in urging the federal government to establish a National Support Fund for Victims of Hate-Motivated Crimes.
Alongside coping with both physical and psycholo...
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau:
In the aftermath of the 2021 National Islamophobia Summit, we were heartened to see your commitment to ensure a review of the CRA’s auditing practices of Muslim charities. We warned, however, that the review would need to be comprehensive and that there would need to be transparency.
Unfortunately, we write to you today to suggest that the above review is inherently flawed.
We, the undersigned, representing Muslim-led organizations across the country, are writing to you today to express our concerns in light of ...
Thanks to your advocacy and generous support...

We, along with many other allies, have been pushing for change so that we stand for human rights everywhere.
We are pleased to see our leaders listening.
Thank you Jagmeet Singh for taking a major step forward by with the NDP’s position on Israel and Palestine. Thank you for your consistent condemnation on illegal settlements, demolitions and plans of annexation, for demanding justice for slain journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, supporting the jurisdiction of the ICC, and for supporting Palestinian human rights groups.

Cette élection, demandons à nos dirigeants de rendre des comptes.
Cette élection, qui aura lieu le 3 octobre, sera déterminante pour l'avenir de la province. Au cours des dernières années, il a été de plus en plus difficile d'être musulman au Québec. La discrimination systémique, comme la loi 21 et les politiques d'immigration racistes, doivent cesser. Le sentiment de sécurité et d'appartenance doivent être rétablis.
Lors de cette élection, demandez à vos candidats locaux ce qu'ils font pour aborder des questions clés ...
NCCM is thrilled to announce our first ever Foreign Affairs Conference, in partnership with IRC and ISNA Canada. The world is changing quickly and so are our conversations around foreign policy. New voices are emerging. New challenges are looming on the horizon. What is increasingly clear, as Canada navigates greater uncertainty, is the importance of taking an inclusive, human rights-based approach in foreign policy endeavours.
From human rights activists to community leaders, Muslim voices are an integral part of any discussion surrounding foreign affairs. ...
Canada is now the leader among G-7 countries for Islamophobia related deaths in the past five years.
The social environment in our country has become more Islamophobic and toxic. Hate crimes spike again and again. Enough is enough, it’s time for real change.
We got here because hate is allowed to run rampant online.
It’s time for real and measured online harms regulations to reduce online hate.
We cannot allow content that openly incites violence against people and groups.
We need reasonable laws that mitigate this growing hate while protecting civil ...

NCCM is asking the Canadian government to ban officials from India who have called for racist and genocidal violence against Muslims and other minorities in India.
These 13 individuals, all members of India’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), should be banned from entering Canada under Section 35 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. They are among the loudest voices calling for ethnic cleansing and violence against India’s minority Muslim population. Most are leading BJP figures. Their administration ...
Accountability Report: One Year After the National Action Summit Against Islamophobia
More Muslims have been killed in targeted hate attacks in Canada than any other G-7 country between 2017-2021 because of Islamophobia.
That fact was taken to heart outside the London Muslim Mosque on June 8, 2021, when thousands of Londoners and people from different parts of the country gathered in the aftermath of the attack that took the lives of four members of the Canadian Muslim community in a shocking act of Islamophobic violence.
The London ...
