The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), formerly the Council on American-Islamic Relations Canada (CAIR-CAN), has the support of political leaders and activists from six Canadian cities (Calgary, Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Windsor and London) for their Charter for Inclusive Communities. A charter which aims at combatting the alleged rise in ‘Islamophobia’ and affirms certain principles, such as: “Islamophobia, like all other forms of racism, hate, xenophobia, and bigotry, has no place in Canadian society.” When Islamists like NCCM mention ‘Islamophobia’ they essentially mean any criticism of Islamic beliefs or customs is considered hate.

Hate crimes against Muslim Canadians did increase from 2012 to 2014; however, the actual number of hate crimes against Muslim Canadians in 2014 is less than half of the total number of hate crimes committed against Jewish Canadians (99 to 213).
