On December 8, 2020, a man attacked two Black Muslim women in Edmonton in the parking lot of a mall. A few days later, another young Black Muslim woman was attacked on public transportation in Edmonton. We've seen more attacks ever since against Muslim women. These attacks happened in the context of rising hate crimes against Albertan Muslims and the emboldening of white supremacists and neo-Nazi organization in the province.
As residents of Alberta, we care deeply about this province. We should be able to be who we are, worship as we choose, and wear what we want ...

"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 ...
Join us in sending this letter to Prime Minister Trudeau and Leader of Canada's NDP, Jagmeet Singh thanking them for their recent statements confronting white supremacist and neo-Nazi organizations. Mr. Singh formally endorsed NCCM's draft national action plan earlier in November.

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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
