Ontario-based relief group linked to Hamas heads to court to get off Canada’s terrorist list

IRFAN-Canada’s troubles with the government began in 2011 when its charity status was revoked after federal auditors concluded it was an “integral part” of the Hamas fundraising network.

In 2012, Justin Trudeau, then a candidate for the Liberal leadership, was criticized for speaking at a Toronto Islamic conference sponsored by the group. Two years later IRFAN-Canada was added to the federal list of terror groups.

According to the Public Safety Canada website, between 2005 and 2009, the non-profit “transferred approximately $14.6 million worth of resources to various organizations with links to Hamas.”
