Threat of Terrorism
Terrorism continues to threaten Canada, Canadians and Canadian interests. Understanding how the global threat environment affects the terrorist threat enables the Government to counter these threats more effectively.
Currently Listed Terrorist Entities
The Government of Canada, pursuant to the Anti-terrorism Act, maintains a list of entities that
- knowingly have carried out, attempted to carry out, participated in, or facilitated a terrorist activity; or
