This paper addresses the need for an historical, Canadian, national incident database on criminal extremism, and highlights methodological issues and challenges inherent in its development. While the contents are suggestive, 18 recommendations are enumerated that should be of interest to policy advisors, subject-matter-experts and those researchers who, ultimately, w ill be responsible for creating the database. Creating a Canadian database on domestic extremist crime is thought to be a useful undertaking, as there can be many benefits. However, as this report makes clear, creating a useful and beneficial tool that stands the test of time is a complicated task and considerable undertaking that requires much forethought.
