At CIJA, we believe in the foundational democratic freedoms and values of Canadian society.

We are committed to working with government and all like-minded groups to ensure that Canada remains a country where all citizens – irrespective of gender, race or creed – enjoy equal protections and opportunities.

Throughout its history, Canada’s Jewish community has been a proud advocate for social justice and human rights, rooted in Jewish tradition, ethics, and values.

The role of Jewish Canadians in the birth of Canada’s labour movement and the community’s ongoing efforts to advance social progress embody a commitment to real and positive change.

Together, we can improve the lives of all who call Canada home.
