ICC Acknowledges Slight Decrease in Antisemitic Incidents in Canada in 2022

Winnipeg, MB – The Israeli Canadian Council (ICC) acknowledges the slight decrease of 1.1% in antisemitic incidents in Canada in 2022, as reported in the latest edition of B’nai Brith Canada’s Annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents. However, the ICC stresses that the decline is far from reassuring and that the level of hate against Jewish Canadians continues to be unacceptably high.

In 2012, B’nai Brith Canada’s Annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents documented 1,345 antisemitic incidents, which was the highest number since the organization began auditing in 1982. A decade later, in 2022, the number was an alarming 105.9% higher than that reported in 2012, and the second-highest total since B’nai Brith started tracking antisemitic incidents in Canada 41 years ago.

Although there was a slight decrease of 1.1% in 2022, the Audit recorded 2,769 incidents, which is still a high number. In 2021, there were 2,799 incidents, which was higher than in 2022.

The ICC is deeply concerned about the ongoing prevalence of antisemitism in Canada, and remains committed to working with government, civil society, and communities across the country to combat this hatred and ensure the safety and security of Jewish Canadians.
