Government of Canada funds tailored approach to countering violent extremism in Eastern Ontario
“The most important job of a government is to keep its citizens safe. Project Reset will help prevent radicalization to violence to help stop tragedies before they occur.”
- Karen McCrimmon, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness
“The funding provided to the John Howard Society of Ottawa through the Community Resilience Fund will support a comprehensive local strategy to address hate motivated violence, which continues to be a complex societal problem demanding a collaborative response. This funding will support Project ReSet’s tailored intervention approach by addressing hate motivated violence in all its forms and contributing to safer communities. Project ReSet will enhance individual, family, and community resilience while reducing the risk for violent behaviour.”
- Christine Macintosh, Associate Executive Director, the John Howard Society of Ottawa
The John Howard Society is a not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to providing a range of community services to prevent crime, reduce poverty, and build self-sufficiency.
The Community Resilience Fund, led by the Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence, provides financial assistance to organizations with activities focused on countering radicalization to violence.
Supporting comprehensive approaches to intervene with cases of radicalization to violence is a priority for the Government of Canada under the recently released National Strategy on Countering Radicalization to Violence.
