Reports from Statistics Canada demonstrate that although the national Jewish community constitutes only 1% of the total population, in 2018 hate crimes against the Jewish community were nearly 20% of the total reported hate crimes. There is a marked increase in antisemitism since the pandemic. Hate crime against other religious groups has dropped except for antisemitism. Antisemitism is the second most common form of Hate crime across Canada, and the most common in Toronto. We can all agree that antisemitism is a problem, and we want to eliminate it.

CCDI sits down with thought leaders in the Canadian Jewish community to discuss what organizations can do to define and combat antisemitism in the workplace and beyond.

Audience/Level: This is an introductory/intermediate level webinar for individuals to learn how to define antisemitism, and how to combat hatred toward Jews in Canada and the workplace
