ABOUT IC Journal

Iranian Canadian Journal (or IC Journal) is an online political and social commentary media platform. We cover stories on political and social activities that affect the lives of Iranians in general and Iranian-Canadians in particular.


The Iranian Canadian Journal is a Canadian non-profit organization and it is led by a team of Iranian-Canadian volunteers.


The Iranian Canadian Journal was established to address the growing need for an independent and progressive platform that publishes articles and content to:

  • Discuss challenges and stereotypes Iranians encounter in Canada and around the world;

  • Combat discrimination against the Iranian community in all its forms (in particular Islamophobia and anti-Iranian sentiment);

  • Promote peace, diplomacy and constructive engagement in the Middle East and raise awareness about policies that escalate tensions and conflict in the region.

Here are the core values that guide our work:

  • We promote respect for human rights as enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

  • We advocate for peace and believe in diplomacy and constructive engagement to address challenges and disagreements.

  • We strongly believe in and promote diversity and multiculturalism.
