A Squamish woman is facing terrorism charges.

An RCMP media release states that on Friday, July 5, Kimberly Polman, 51, was arrested and charged by the Pacific Region RCMP Federal Policing Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET).

The charges include one count under Section 83.181 of the Criminal Code: Leaving Canada to Participate in Activity of Terrorist Group, and one count under Section 83.18 of the Criminal Code: Participation in Activity of Terrorist Group.

The Mounties allege the accused left Canada and travelled to Syria in 2015 to join ISIS.

The charges have not been proven in court.

Polman was repatriated to Canada in October of 2022 and was placed on a series of bail conditions.

Since Nov. 7, 2023, she has been subject to a Terrorism Peace Bond under s.810.011 of the Criminal Code.

Polman is scheduled to appear in Vancouver Provincial Court on Friday, Aug. 2.

RCMP say the suspect has been released with a number of conditions until her court date.
