The National Council on Canada-Arab Relations (NCCAR) is a non-profit organization established in 1985. Its mission is to foster understanding and cooperation between Canada and the Arab world. NCCAR works with governments, the private sector, and community organizations to promote programs that enhance Canadian awareness of the Arab world.
The Council aims to facilitate the growth of commercial, scientific, educational, and cultural connections between institutions in Canada and the Arab region. NCCAR is guided by the belief that Canada and the Arab world share a commitment to global peace, have mutual interests in expanding trade, and aspire to develop stronger cultural and educational bonds.
