Canada’s Parliament declared December 6 the National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women, following the murder of 14 female engineering students at l’École Polytechnique de Montreal in 1989.

In addition to commemorating the 14 young women whose lives ended in an act of gender-based violence that shocked the nation, December 6 represents an opportunity for Canadians to reflect more intentionally on the phenomenon of violence against women in our society. It is also an opportunity to consider the women and girls for whom violence is a daily reality, and to remember those who have died as a result of gender-based violence. Finally, it is a day on which communities can stand in solidarity and consider concrete actions to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls.

On the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, the University of Toronto commemorates the many ways in which all women experience gender-based violence — from missing and murdered Indigenous women, transgender women, and the broad spectrum of women from vulnerable populations.
This year’s event will include lunch, the presentation of awards to honour research that addresses gender-based violence, a keynote address by Rania El Mugammar and a ceremony to honour the women of the Polytechnique.
