The CIJA Team
CIJA has long been advocating for expanded and improved support from the federal government pertaining to the safety and well-being of Jewish institutions and the communities they serve.
This week the federal government announced updates to the Security Infrastructure Program (SIP), including the introduction of the new Severe Hate-Motivated Incident Support (SHMIS) funding stream, which will allow organizations, including synagogues and Jewish community centres that have been targeted by serious hate-motivated attacks, to apply for prioritized support. This is a welcome announcement in the face of rising antisemitic incidents across Canada.
CIJA Vice President Richard Marceau was in Brussels for the Second Interparliamentary Task Force to Combat Online Antisemitism Summit, an international event that brings elected officials from civil society and representatives from social media platforms from across the globe to discuss and develop best practices for combating online antisemitism.
