Protecting Community Institutions (Bill C-510)


CIJA is working to advance Member of Parliament Marc Garneau’s Private Member’s Bill (C-510). CIJA is working to secure and maintain cross-party support for this important legislation that would expand the legal protections for Jewish community schools and community centres. C-510 would make it a specific criminal offence, punishable by up to ten years in prison, to “commit mischief” motivated by bias, prejudice or hate targeting educational and other community institutions, a move that would extend the criminal penalties already in place for targeting synagogues to other community facilities.
