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 ...
The ongoing demolitions and evictions taking place across Palestine by Israeli-state authorities are a gross violation of international law. Despite numerous independent international agencies calling for these practises to end, Israel has not ceased in their actions.
Palestinians are in a constant fight to keep their homes. It is time Canada stepped up to its international obligations and pushed Israel to halt the evictions of Palestinians and end the expansion of illegal settlements.

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 ...
Last year, the Israeli government declared six Palestinian civil society groups supported by the international community as terrorist organizations, prompting international outcry.
The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, which partners with the NGOs, echoed criticisms raised around the world that the designations listed “extremely vague or irrelevant reasons, including entirely peaceful and legitimate activities”.
Our allies did not keep silent. Numerous elected officials in the United States and in Europe – too numerous to ...
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.

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 ...

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 ...
SAY NO TO BILL 21
We at the National Council of Canadian Muslims are standing up against Bill 21 and we need your support. Let’s show the Government of Canada that we will not stand for this discriminatory law.
Bill 21 is the law in Quebec, Canada that bans individuals wearing religious symbols from working in certain public sector positions. This is a law that doesn’t just affect Muslims.
It affects those wearing a kippah, a turban, a crucifix and of course those that wear hijab.
This means our sisters, daughters, ...
