White Ribbon Day 2024

December 6, 2024 in Canada

White Ribbon Day is observed on December 06, 2024. The National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, also known informally as White Ribbon Day, is a day commemorated in Canada each December 6, the anniversary of the 1989 École Polytechnique massacre, in which fourteen women were singled out for their gender and murdered. It is often marked by vigils, discussions and other reflections on violence against women. Canadian flags on all federal buildings - including the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Ontario - are flown at half-mast on December 6. In addition, Canadians are encouraged to observe a minute of silence on December 6 and to wear a white ribbon (or a purple ribbon) as a commitment to end violence against women.
