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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

NCCM Demands Immediate Action from the PDSB

The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is demanding that the PDSB Chair, Brad MacDonald and Director of Education, Peter Joshua immediately resign given the conclusions reached in the report from Arlene Huggins.

Huggins further noted that non-compliance with the recommendations made in the report from PDSB is “probable”. That’s ...

Protecting Our Charitable Institutions

We at the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) have seen firsthand how Canadian Muslim charities have risen to the challenge of providing support services to the elderly, the impoverished, the unwell, and to those seeking shelter. We know that at this time our charitable institutions are most at risk. Mosques and aid organizations across Canada that support the most vulnerable are facing challenges on both ends. On one end, they aren’t able to host fundraising events and have had to close their physical spaces. On the other end, the demand on their ...
