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 ...
On December 20, the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) published a letter by Dr. Sherif Emil with deeply disturbing Islamophobic content targeting Muslim girls and women who wear a hijab.
This article falls short of the Canadian Medical Association’s Code of Ethics and Professionalism standards and contributes to dangerously harmful stereotypes about a demographic that has been targeted by some of the most violent forms of Islamophobia in this country
Act now! How can you help?

This week, Leader Jagmeet Singh made history by standing on the right side of it.
Canadian and Quebec Muslims and those who care deeply about civil liberties have raised their voices about Bill 21 - and we thank Jagmeet Singh and the NDP for now committing to join the battle.
Standing for Quebecers and for the dignity is a non-partisan issue.
We are looking forward to seeing all parties stand up for what is right.
Join us in sending a letter to thank Leader Jagmeet Singh for his commitments, and call upon Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Leader Erin O'Toole to ...

The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan is alarming.
Canada’s role in the Afghanistan crisis is indisputable. We owe it, after two decades of war and occupation, and to so many who lost loved ones and friends, to take action in the ongoing humanitarian crisis by expanding the numbers of refugees being brought to Canada.
Therefore, we are actively urging the federal government to respond to this crisis by:
Expanding commitments to accept and resettle refugees from 20,000 to at least 95,000 on an expedited ...
Last week was historic - we sat in a room with officials from each level of government, and proposed 61 policy recommendations to combat the challenges of Islamophobia in all of its forms. These recommendations were drawn from dozens of community consultations with organizations that represent hundreds of thousands of Canadian Muslims.
Alhamdullilah, a number of positive commitments were made, which are consistent with our recommendations.
However, more is clearly needed to address the many challenges in front of us.
We need you to do two things:
1. Send a ...
Demolitions have begun at Silwan by Israeli-state authorities even as numerous independent international agencies have called for forced evictions to end.
Silwan is a neighborhood in east Jerusalem adjacent to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, one of the most sacred places to Muslims internationally. It is estimated that 60% of the 1,500 Palestinian residents of Silwan in East Jerusalem who are about to be displaced by Israel are children.
The demolition of the neighbourhood of Silwan is in gross violation of international law.

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 ...

On June 6, 2021, a man got in his truck with the pre-meditated intent to kill Muslims. He drove down a street in London and ran over a family who were waiting to cross the street at an intersection. He killed four members of the family – a grandmother, a mother, a father and a child – and he seriously injured a 9-year-old boy. They were the Afzal and Salman family of London, Ontario.
Their names will be etched in the hearts of Canadians for a long time. Muslims in Canada have become all ...
Write a letter today to the federal leaders of Canada regarding the recent reprehensible attacks and escalation of violence perpetrated by Israeli authorities on Palestinians.
Right now, Canada’s statements have been insufficient. Canada’s statement have not acknowledged the following human rights violations, which violate all norms and basic human dignity:
Attacks on journalists;
The bombing of humanitarian facilities, like the Red Crescent;
The killing of physicians, including those leading the fight against COVID in Palestine;
The blockage ...
