Online public consultation

The Canada Centre invited Canadians to share their thoughts on countering radicalization to violence through an online consultation. Through the consultation, Canadians were able to provide advice on a number of priorities:

  • How local communities and frontline actors can participate in addressing radicalization to violence and its harmful impacts;
  • Where funding and other resources can be directed in order to get the best results; and
  • The role that the Canada Centre can play in increasing public knowledge about countering radicalization to violence.
