Hikma was pleased to hear the recent announcement of the federal government to begin the process to appoint a Special Representative to fight Islamophobia. This was one of the requests made by NCCM and Hikma in last year’s National Summit on Islamophobia. We are also pleased to see that in the 2022 Budget, funding for this Representative role in the amount of $1.2 million was announced. This role must be properly staffed and resourced, in order for it to be effective.
The application is available here. The deadline to apply for the position is July 6th.
