The city of Toronto has partnered up with the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants to help break down what they believe is a rise in islamophobia in the city.

 

The partnership recently launched an advertisement last Tuesday which features a white male telling a woman in a hijab to go back where she came from.

 

“Where,” replies the woman, “North York?”

 

The bottom caption then reads “Muslims are a part of Toronto.”

 

The agency’s executive director Debbie Douglas says she has “absolutely” seen a rise in the anti-Muslim sentiment since refugees began arriving from Syria in large numbers in December. The agency hopes that ads like these will help break the stigma.
