Serangan ini memicu perdebatan soal prevalensi Islamofobia di Kanada dan semakin menambah kekhawatiran di komunitas Muslim karena afiliasi tanda-tanda keagamaan bisa menjadikan seseorang menjadi target.

Serangan ini tercatat sebagai serangan anti-Muslim paling mematikan di Kanada, setelah penembakan di masjid Quebec City yang menewaskan enam orang tahun 2017 lalu.
