In 1991, the Parliament of Canada declared December 6th to be the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

The day now represents a time to reflect on the phenomenon of violence against women in our society. It is also a day for communities and individuals to speak out against all forms of violence against women and its impact on victims and their families and friends.

Please wear a white ribbon and attend candlelight vigils, memorial services, and other events are held throughout the province. Source: http://www.women.gov.on.ca/
