Event Details

Canada changed forever on December 6, 1989 when 14 young women were murdered in a gender-based act of violence at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal.

The University of Waterloo, in partnership with the Canadian Federation of University Women Kitchener-Waterloo, is hosting a special ceremony of remembrance. 

You are invited to attend virtually, as we come together to honour the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
This day is an opportunity to reflect on and honour the lives of 14 young women, and a reminder to take action against gender-based violence that those who identify as women face.

The event will be broadcast on YouTube Live.  A link will be provided to all attendees prior to the event.
