Priorities and Key Activities

The Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence (Canada Centre) is focused on supporting efforts at the local level because we know it is key to successful prevention.

Collaboration is important to the Canada Centre and we work with partners from a variety of sectors from all levels of governments, not-for-profit organizations, frontline practitioners, academia, law enforcement, and international partners.

The Canada Centre does not manage, or advise on, individual cases.

If you, or someone you know, is in immediate danger, call 911 or your local police department.

To report information regarding terrorism, criminal extremism or suspicious activities which could pose a threat to national safety and security contact:
RCMP National Security Tip Line: 1-800-420-5805


Outreach and Engagement

Input from Canadians informs all areas of our work. The Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence (Canada Centre) wants to hear from youth, communities, professionals and volunteers involved in prevention, and other stakeholders to help shape our work. 

Learn more about outreach and engagement events and activities.


Our programming efforts are focused on funding local programs through the Community Resilience Fund.


The Canada Centre conducts, coordinates, and funds research in Canada and collaboration with leading international experts. Our focus is on action-oriented research that is practical and can be applied to people working on the frontlines in Canada. 

The Research Catalogue provides summaries of research on terrorism and radicalization to violence funded by the Kanishka Project and the Community Resilience Fund.


We will work closely with our Government of Canada partners to develop policy that is informed by our engagement with communities.

Under this work, we are finding ways to support prevention. Some of the issues we are working on with partners include how to support individuals or groups who are pushing back against violent extremism, how to address terrorist propaganda and recruitment online, and how to rehabilitate and reintegrate individuals who want to leave behind involvement with violent extremism.

Another key focus is to develop a national strategy on countering radicalization to violence, which will outline how we will all work together on this issue.
