گزارش دکتر امیرحسن قاسمی نژاد درباره نتایج آخرین نظرسنجی از اعضای کنگره ایرانیان کانادا در جلسه عمومی گفتگوی آنلاین با هیات مدیره کنگره ایرانیان کانادا
Here is a letter from the ICC President, Dr. Moslem Noori to Conservative MPP Goldie Ghamari regarding her baseless accusations against the Iranian Canadian Congress.
On October 26th, while commemorating 40th day of Mahsa Amini’s horrific death in police custody, you attacked the Iranian Canadian Congress. Specifically, you called us “pro-Islamic Regime lobby group”.
The Iranian Canadian Congress is grassroots, non-partisan, non-religious, and non-profit Canadian advocacy organization, supported by hundreds of members across the country. Your characterization of the ICC as a foreign lobbying group is not only patently false, but also the spreading of misinformation discriminates against a Canadian civic community organization.
Despite your views, ICC has issued 3 statements since September 16th, in solidarity with Iranian people, particularly women, who are demanding change, their fundamental rights, freedom and justice and condemning violence, oppression and targeted harassment of the Iranian people's human rights to peaceful assembly and protest. Many members of Iranian Canadian Congress have taken part in various demonstrations across Canada in solidary with Iranian people in Iran.
When we see our volunteers threatened, our board members harassed, and our organization’s name used as a slur in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, we must stand and say Enough. This irresponsible behavior in the past few weeks, has incited harmful behaviour that resulted in vandalism of certain Iranian Canadian centers, verbal attacks, physical abuse and cyberbullying against individuals such as MP of Richmond Hill, Majid Jowhari, as well as other organizations in our community.
At a time when our community should be coming together, it is disheartening to listen to an elected official fueling the already tense situation in our community, rather than trying to bring people together. Therefore, we ask you to retract your comments and apologize to the ICC.
If you have any questions about our organization's activities and positions in the future, we ask you to approach us directly rather than directing accusations against us.

Iranian Canadian Congress requests to Investigate Corrupt Officials and Embezzlers from Iran
Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada Honourable David Lametti,
Minister of Public Safety Honourable Marco Mendicino,
Minister of National Revenue Honourable Diane Lebouthillier,
With the start of the protests in Iran, the Iranian Canadian community has renewed its request to the Canadian government to investigate cases of individuals who have accumulated extreme wealth through corruption and embezzlement in Iran and have fled to Canada. The Iranian Canadian Congress (ICC) had previously expressed its concern about such cases in a letter to the Canadian government and launched a petition, supported by thousands of our community members, asking the government to open an investigation on the cases of embezzlers, such as Mahmoud Reza Khavari, using the full power of the Canadian law including but not limited to anti-money laundry laws.
Despite such requests on several occasions, Iranian Canadians have never received any response, nor has the government taken any tangible action on this issue. The inaction of the Canadian government on these cases has allowed individuals who have enriched themselves from corruption to evade justice and has damaged the Iranian Canadians’ trust in the government's willingness to stand up for the rights of the Iranian people.
As such, we call on the Canadian government and the Minister of Justice, the Minister of Public Safety and the Minister of National Revenue to do the right thing and finally respond to the request of our community by immediately launching investigations through responsible agencies about the cases of these embezzlers and corrupt individuals. We are confident that such an action will be well received by our community and will reinforce Canada’s position to stand with the Iranian people at this difficult time.
Our government and law enforcement agencies must prevent Canada from becoming a safe haven for corrupt money and corrupt individuals. Our government must act now!
President, Iranian Canadian Congress
The Iranian Canadian Congress (ICC) condemns the terrorist attack in Shiraz, Iran.
15 people including a woman and two children have been killed and more than 20 people have also been injured on Oct 26, 2022.
ISIS has claimed responsibility for this terrorist attack.
We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wish speedy recovery for those injured.
Le Congrès irano-canadien est profondément troublé par la situation en Iran et réitère sa solidarité avec les manifestants pacifiques réclamant leurs droits fondamentaux, la liberté et la justice. Nous sommes dévastés par la violence de la répression et de la brutalité policière qui ont coûté la vie à des dizaines de personnes et blessé des centaines de personnes.
La CIC condamne ces actes de violence qui menacent le caractère sacré de la vie et compromettent les droits humains du peuple iranien à se réunir pacifiquement et à manifester. Nous condamnons fermement le harcèlement ciblé et la répression contre les femmes en Iran.
Nous sommes également profondément préoccupés par les pannes d'Internet imposées par l'État en Iran - laissant les Iraniens incapables de communiquer avec le monde extérieur ainsi que les membres de la diaspora incapables de se connecter avec leur famille et leurs proches pendant cette période difficile.
Des milliers de membres de la communauté irano-canadienne se sont joints aux manifestations de solidarité à travers le Canada. Nous faisons écho de leurs appels à la liberté, à l'unité et à la paix. Nous exprimons notre solidarité avec notre famille, amis et compatriotes en Iran.
