December 6th is the The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada, a day of commemoration to honour the lives of the 14 women lost in the École Polytechnique shooting in 1989. On December 6th we recognize the strength and resilience of those who experience gender-based violence in Canada and around the world.
On December 6, we remember:
In Canada, COVID-19 has exacerbated the rates of reported gender-based violence, which is only a small representation of the actual number of incidences. We encourage everyone to be reflective and to take action toward eliminating gender-based violence.
