Court challenge targets Quebec secularism law. (2020, November 4). Catholic Register 


Bill 21, the secularism law in Quebec which bans religious symbols in the public sector, has been criticized as predominantly impacting women. As a result, critics argue that the notwithstanding clause is invalid as it breaches the sexual equality guarantees in the Charter. Human rights and religious groups have called upon the federal government to challenge the Bill. Other provinces such as Ontario have also condemned the Bill.


The Teaching Against Islamophobia resources were developed with funding support from the Law Foundation of BC, and the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at SFU.
