In Canada, as in many other countries, university campuses have become hot beds of antisemitic rhetoric and action across the political spectrum. Antisemitism is a complex, multifaceted phenomenon, and in the face of this toxic new reality we need new strategies to challenge the status quo and move the fight against antisemitism forward.

We believe that allyship is essential to addressing antisemitism on campus, which is why we created the Wiesenthal Campus Advocacy Fellowship. Each year this program will offer a diverse cohort of 10 Canadian undergraduate student leaders a year-long experience including hands-on training from leading human rights advocates and a trip to see first-hand the realities of life in Israel. Through this program Advocates will develop the skills needed to help shape the next generation of leadership in human rights and combatting antisemitism.

The Wiesenthal Campus Advocacy Fellowship is made possible through the vision and generosity of our valued donors. We invite you to join them in supporting this important program to ensure its future development.


By donating to this timely initiative, you are investing in a more tolerant, more inclusive society, contributing to a better future for your children and grandchildren. For more information on supporting the Wiesenthal Campus Advocacy Fellowship, please contact Ariel Tobe at or 416-864-9735.
