La’ad Canada is a non-partisan, evidence-based Jewish community organization. Our mandate is two-fold: to fight antisemitism directed at Canadian Jews, and to
encourage and foster a strong Jewish identity.
We believe that the best, most effective advocacy and anti-racism work is done through research and education. As such, we rely on data when making recommendations or shaping our advocacy initiatives, and our core staff and volunteer leadership was chosen with these considerations in mind.
La’ad Canada has been doing community outreach and anti-racism work since its inception in 2016. Most recently, La’ad has been conducting training with police agencies, first responders and public sector workers in Canada and the United States on how to combat antisemitism, how to relate more effectively with Jewish people on emergency calls, and how to proactively address the needs of the Jewish community.
