Another controversial Islamic group with ties to a terrorist organization will receive the Trudeau government's Canada Summer Jobs Grant, the Sun has learned.
According to a government database of grant recipients, the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC) has been approved to receive ten grants to fund activities for its various chapters across Ontario. MAC's Mississauga chapter is listed as receiving three separate grants.
In 2015, QMI news agency obtained an RCMP search warrant that linked MAC headquarters in Mississauga to the International Relief Fund for the Afflicted and Needy-Canada (IRFAN-Canada) – a banned terrorist organization with financial ties to Hamas.
Though no charges were laid as a result of the warrant, the RCMP cited a CRA document showing that "MAC provided $296,514 between 2001 and 2010" to IRFAN-Canada.
