CPCMO is a think tank to provide a platform for diverse voices within the Muslim communities of Canada, who are engaged in following the principles and values stated in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, while understanding the reasons that lead to problems of Muslim radicalization.

CPCMO supports Muslims who recognize that sharia is a time-bound, humanly constructed, legal-political system created in the 9th Century which is at odds with the modern world, and are working towards reform.

CPCMO has been created explicitly to draw upon the talents of experts from within its membership to work upon a variety of challenging issues both locally and globally.
