National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women in Canada

December 6 is Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women in Canada. This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the École Polytechnique massacre.  I invite you to view a livestreamed memorial event where we will gather to honour the Montreal women who were killed and to remember the Manitoba women who died as a result of violence this past year.

The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women falls during 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, an international campaign that runs from Nov. 25 to Dec. 10 to help create a culture where violence against women is not accepted.

This year’s memorial will be livestreamed on Monday, December 6, 2021, in the Rotunda of the Manitoba Legislative Building, starting at 10:30 a.m.  You can view the event at Government of Manitoba - News Releases and YouTube - Manitoba Government. A recording of this event will also be posted on this page following the livestream.
