Prime Minister Stephen Harper, April 2009:

“I commend C-CAT for encouraging a substantive dialogue on terrorism. You have… galvanized divergent groups across the country to unite against those that seek to undermine the cohesiveness of
Canadian society.”
C-CAT is comprised of Canadian terror victims, counterterrorism professionals, lawyers and other individuals dedicated to building bridges between the private and public sectors in the battle against terrorism and to assisting terror victims in rebuilding their lives.


C-CAT speaks for a unique constituency of Canadians from faith groups and communities across Canada that has personally and directly experienced the horrific impact of terrorism. Some C-CAT members lost a single relative, others lost entire families, and several were injured themselves.

C-CAT is committed to a wide range of projects including:

  • Civil Action Against Terrorism – The passage of the Justice for Victims of Terrorism Act. The bill will allow terror victims to launch law suits against state and local sponsors of terror.
  • Sanctions Against Iran – Advocacy for broader and more effective sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran
  • The IRGC – Banning of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) as a terrorist entity
  • Listed Entities -- The inclusion of other unlisted terrorist entities on Canada's list of banned terrorist organizations
  • Terror Assets – Enactment of regulations to expedite the seizure and redistribution of terrorist assets
  • Passage of Bill S-209 – A bill marking 9/11 as a National Day of Service.
