What you should know about our Annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents

Since 1982, the Annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents has served as the authoritative document on antisemitism in Canada.

The data expressed in the Audit, produced each year by B’nai Brith Canada’s advocacy arm, the League for Human Rights, reflect the level of antisemitic incidents reported to, and monitored by, the League, including through its Anti-Hate Hotline as well as data collected from police and law enforcement agencies.

Cited regularly by Canadian and international mainstream media outlets, public officials, NGOs, and government bodies, the Audit focuses on antisemitic incidents that both meet, and fall short of, the Criminal Code definition of a hate crime. This is essential for capturing the climate of antisemitism in Canada, which requires independent tracking and assessment.

As such, the Audit serves as a barometer for antisemitism as a phenomenon in Canada.
