The Canadian government has added 13 groups to its list of terrorist organizations, including the Proud Boys, making it the first country to designate the neo-fascist group a terrorist entity.

In a government statement Wednesday, Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said the additions to the list, which was created in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, are "an important step in our effort to combat violent extremism in all forms."

With the additions to the list , there are now 73 terrorist entities listed under the Criminal Code, all of which face financial and legal ramifications due to their designation.
