Established in 1875, B’nai B’rith Canada is Canadian Jewry’s most senior human rights advocacy organization and is the only national, independent voice of Jewish Canadians.
Its dedicated volunteers and professional staff are engaged in strong pro-Israel advocacy, as well as combating anti-Semitism, bigotry, and racism in Canada and abroad. B’nai B’rith Canada’s wide-ranging educational and social programming, community and volunteer services, housing and human rights initiatives span coast to coast and reflect the organization’s commitment to “People Helping People.”
B’nai B’rith Canada’s Chief Executive Officer Michael Mostyn has guided the organization since taking over in 2014. In 2007, Embassy Magazine, Canada’s highly acclaimed foreign policy weekly, named B’nai B’rith Canada the major Jewish non-governmental organization (NGO) with influence in the foreign policy field.
Just as B’nai B’rith Canada has grown and evolved over the years in response to changing needs, so has Canadian Jewry undergone many transformations. Throughout, B’nai B’rith Canada has employed its successful advocacy model of strong community and results-oriented grassroots activism.
