According to Reuters, the funding will help establish a system to alert small businesses when terrorist content emerges, to help them remove it faster, and the agency said it would help support small platforms, to enable them to remove extremist, terrorist and violent content altogether from their platforms.

Last month, Canada joined other countries and technology companies in adopting a pledge to eliminate extremist and terrorist content over the Internet following the shooting of mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand.

In early April, Secretary of State Christia Freeland said movements advocating white supremacy pose a real threat to Western liberal democracy and believe it represents a real and serious threat in Canada and in many other countries of the world.

The Canadian government has funded a number of other initiatives related to online extremism, including 1.5 million Canadian dollars to a project Moonshot CVE, who uses online ads and videos to direct people to the content created by credible third parties to challenge ideas that drive destructive and violent behaviors, and to contribute to hate speech studies and how young people interact with them.
