About CIJA

CIJA is the advocacy agent of Jewish Federations across Canada. As a national, non-partisan, non-profit organization that represents the perspectives and interests of Jewish Canadians affiliated with their local Jewish Federation to elected officials, leaders in civil society, media, and others involved Canadian discourse and public policy discussion. 

As the Jewish and pro-Israel community is diverse, no single organization can claim to serve as the sole representative of that constituency. However, CIJA is Canada’s most democratic and representative Jewish organization comprising various local and national entities that enable Canada’s Jewish community to directly inform CIJA’s positions, priorities, and initiatives. CIJA ensures the voices of Canadas Jewish community are heard at all levels of government.
