The National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) is a Canadian Muslim civil liberties advocacy organization.[1] NCCM was formerly known as the Canadian Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-CAN).[2]

NCCM is active in human rights and civil liberties work, media relations and public advocacy. NCCM comments on current issues, provides anti-discrimination services, produces numerous publications (A Journalist's Guide to Islam, for example) and contributes frequent op-eds to Canadian newspapers.

According to 2001 census, there were 579,640 Muslims in Canada, just under 2% of the population.[3] In 2006, the Canadian Muslim population was estimated to be 783,700 or about 2.5%.[4]
