This article, based on the authors’ work supported by a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada – Insight program research grant, briefly outlines the main issues concerning gendered racism and misogyny that arose from 51 semi-structured interviews conducted by the authors. The resulting testimonials evidence recognition of the existence of latent Islamophobia issues being kept alive in Canada. Mercier-Dalphond and Helly point out that institutional factors to systemic racism concerning hate crime violence against Muslims are manifest when the state or judicial processes do not punish violent acts; related problems include victims not receiving proper police attention when seeking justice and a reluctance among security forces and politicians to consider such violent Islamophobia as hate crimes. Since the subject of Canadian white supremacist groups, which are described in this article as posing a real threat in terms of hate crime violence, is beyond the scope of this article, the authors focus mainly on the rich terrain of the gendered, racist nature of anti-Muslim hate crimes in Canada.
