Violence Against Women Rememberance and Action Day

Unifor marks December 6, the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women with a call to action to make our workplaces and communities safer.

As we remember the 13 engineering students and one worker who were murdered at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal in 1989, we also commemorate all the missing and murdered Indigenous women, trans women, and all women whose lives have been harmed or lost to gender-based violence.

Each year, Unifor supports the crucial work of women’s shelters across the country through donations between November 25 and December 6. These donations are a small but important contribution towards the chronically underfunded shelter system.

Our greater goal is to end the need for shelters and work toward safer workplaces and communities. Join us today and every day.
