The Kashmiri-Canadian Council (KCC) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to promote the Kashmiri cause, both within Canada
and internationally. In Canada, the KCC is working with NGOs, media, academicians, students and the conscientious Canadians
to raise the level of awareness about the Kashmiri people's struggle for their right of self-determination as enshrined in
successive United Nations resolutions. It is also dedicated to promote and encourage the association of Kashmiris in Canada.
The KCC's objectives are:
a) To promote a better understanding of the Kashmiri situation to the Canadian people and organisations.
b) To strive at all levels of Canadian frame work for building a favourable public opinion for implementation of the United
Nations resolutions of 1948 and 1949, which gave the people of Jammu and Kashmir their right of self-determination.
c) To draw the attention of the Government of Canada and the Parliamentarians to the plight of Kashmiris, and the need
for Ottawa to show its pro-active leadership role on the issue, support a peaceful settlement of this conflict by bringing
all concerned parties to the dispute to the negotiating table - namely, India, Pakistan and the accredited leadership of the
people of Jammu and Kashmir.
d) To urge the G-7 leaders, the Commonwealth Heads of Government and the Secretary General of the United Nations to act
more quickly and effectively in halting massive violations of human rights in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) and to assist
parties to find a peaceful and lasting solution of the worlds oldest dispute.
e) To publicise the tragedy of IOK and to uphold and defend the human rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir.
To achieve its objective the KCC will use all peaceful, moral and political means within the framework of Canadian legality.
