The Canadian Council of Imams is a collective leadership of Imams (Ministers of Religion) in Canada. Established in 1990, the Council has been meeting every month and has succeeded in bringing most of the Imams together. We have deliberated over many issues affecting the community and put forward some solutions. At the same time it filled a vacuum with the Government and it has become the principal liaison with Federal, Ontario Provincial and Toronto Municipal Governments.
The Canadian Council of Imams (CCI) has called upon the Federal Minister of National Revenue Diane Lebouthillier to initiate an investigation into the existence of Islamophobic practices in the Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA) Charities Directorate and the CRA’s use of its privileges as a regulatory agency to deliberately discredit respected Canadian Muslim leaders.
