What's New

Statement on Anti-Asian racism

We echo the outpouring of grief, anger, and pain that is being shared about the Atlanta attacks and anti-Asian racism. And we add our voices to the many stating what is obvious, but bears repeating: Canada is not immune from this hate.

Jean Augustine and Nicholas Johnson in conversation with Yasir Naqvi

In celebration of #BlackHistoryMonth, our CEO Yasir Naqvi sat down virtually with Jean Augustine, the first Black woman elected to the House of Commons, and Nicholas Johnson, the first Black valedictorian at Princeton University, for a conversation about firsts, Black History Month, and hope for the future.

Conversations that Matter – Yasir Naqvi on democracy and active citizenship

Our CEO, Yasir Naqvi, speaks with veteran journalist Stuart McNish about democracy and our responsibilities as citizens.

``Let’s not take our democratic institutions for granted. Let’s not take our democratic rights for granted,`` he says.

Opinion: Don’t be smug, Canada. The U.S. insurrection shows even the strongest democracies are fragile

Canadians are often smug when it comes to American politics. We like to believe that we are more progressive than our southern neighbours, that we could never elect our own Trump, that we are somehow better, less corrupt, nicer. That thinking is more than ignorant; it’s dangerous.

Campaign aims to lower COVID-19 racism toward new Canadians

#StandTogether campaign features a video with clips from numerous front-line workers from across Canada, all of whom became Canadian citizens in the last year.

“The campaign is a message of unity and hope for everyone, so I said ‘I want to take part in this,'” said Joyce Genova, a continuing care assistant at The Meadows seniors home in Swift Current. “I want to be an active citizen.”

Our vision at the ICC keeps in mind that eventually Canada’s net population growth will be entirely attributable to immigration. By creating opportunities for new Canadian citizens to participate fully in our cultural and political life, we will be able to continue to nurture the kind of society we have worked so hard to create: public education, cultural activities, parks, and medical care.— The Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson
