In July , B'nai Brith Canada issued a press release  denouncing Carleton University for hiring Hassan Diab , who was alleged by French authorities to have been responsible for the Paris synagogue bombing. Diab was living under virtual house arrest at the time he had been granted bail but under very strict conditions due to an extradition request from France.
Diab, who has denied any involvement with the synagogue bombing, has not been convicted of any crime.
Within a few hours of the B'nai Brith Canada complaint, Carleton University announced that it would "immediately replace the current instructor, Hassan Diab" in order to provide students "with a stable, productive academic environment that is conducive to learning. According to an article in The Forward , B'nai Brith Canada had 4, full-dues paying members in In , a group calling itself Concerned Members of B'nai Brith Canada charged that a new constitution had been passed despite a majority of members having voted against it at a general meeting.
Henry Gimpel, a former Toronto lodge president, told The Forward that "[t]here's too much of [B'nai Brith Canada] being run by one person.

B'nai Brith Canada owned and operated the weekly Jewish Tribune as a subsidiary publication. On November 29, , B'nai Brith Canada sued the Canadian government for "failing to crack down on the fundraising efforts of Hezbollah ", by not adding Hezbollah's charity wing to the list of banned terrorist organizations; the military wing of Hezbollah was already listed, but not the entire organization.
