December 11– Special Activity 

16 Days of Activism Interview Series 

  • The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence campaign might be over, but the work never stops. For the campaign, the NATO Association of Canada has compiled an interview series with women doing great work in Canada to showcase why it is important to act against gender-based violence.

October 4 – Special Activity 

October 4th Vigils: A Movement for Social Change

  • October 4th is a day where we honour the lives of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). The violence experienced by Indigenous women and girls in Canada is a national tragedy. A vigil can take many forms, from a moment of silence, to a rally, to a community feast. All that matters is to take some time on or around October 4th to mark the day.
