National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women

Today, 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.

Join us on Twitter to take the pledge that you do not stand for gender-based violence using the hashtag #MyActionsMatter.
