The following is taken from National Council of Canadian Muslims web site. NCCM is formally known as CAIR Canada. It was the Canadian arm of the American organization CAIR implicated in Muslim terrorist activities. On July 6, 2013, CAIR-CAN issued a press release announcing that the organization will now be known as the National Council of Canadian Muslims (Conseil National des Musulmans Canadiens in French).
Given our expertise in anti-discrimination work, the NCCM educates employers and service providers about basic Islamic religious practices to break down barriers of misunderstanding and promote inclusive workplaces. This includes providing timely publications such as our Employer’s Guide to Islamic Religious Practices.
To develop civically-engaged communities, NCCM provides cutting-edge training in human rights & civil liberties, public relations, community outreach and leadership development to Canadian Muslim communities. Since 2000, we have conducted hundreds of workshops and seminars across Canada.
Our public work further includes organizing and participating in major public conferences, coalitions, and campaigns with community partners on pressing issues such as reasonable accommodation of religious practices, national security, fundamental rights, countering extremism and much more.
Justin Trudeau on numerous occasions has remined Canadians of the great contribution the Muslim community is contributing to the future of Canada. Justin Trudeau also reminds Canadians that Islam is compatible with democracy contrary to what some leading influential Imams and Muslim scholars say.
