National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women

Wednesday, December 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women. To mark the day, flags at our buildings will be flown at half-mast from sunrise to sunset.

On the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women, we remember the 14 female engineering students who were murdered at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal on December 6, 1989 by an act of gender-based violence. We also commemorate the missing and murdered Aboriginal women, the trans-women and each and every woman in Canada and across the world whose lives have been harmed or lost to gender-based violence.
