The Privy Council polled Muslims on the “lack of equity for their religion” in Canada, new records show. The research was conducted following the Prime Minister’s appointment of an advisor on Islamophobia.

“Asked to identify what they felt to be the top issues impacting Muslims in Canada, several cited what they perceived as a lack of equity for their religion compared to others practiced throughout the country,” said a Privy Council report. “Several described what they viewed as limited accommodation for rituals such as daily prayer as well as discrimination towards visual symbols associated with their religion including the wearing of headscarves.”
