Bad is the continued antisemitism on the streets of Canada


Sign the CIJA PETITION


CAEF JOINS WITH CIJA IN ASKING ALL CITIZENS OF ONTARIO TO SUPPORT ONTARIO BILL 168, ITS TIME TO URGE THE GOVERNMENT TO ADOPT LEGISLATION TO COMBAT ANTISEMITISM.


We cannot afford to be complacent.


An effective strategy to fight antisemitism begins with a clear definition, so that Authorities – and all Canadians – can identify and combat antisemitism when it arises.


Bill 168: An Act to Combat Antisemitism provides an internationally accepted definition which empowers government and civil society to tackle this growing scourge.


Thanks to support from many people, the Bill passed its first and second readings, and is now in committee.


We now need your help in calling on the members of the Ontario Standing Committee on Justice Policy to ask them to act on Bill 168: the Combating Antisemitism Act.
