Council and staff of the Advisory Council on the Status of Women extend sincere and heartfelt appreciation to everyone who participated in the 2020 Montreal Massacre Memorial video commemoration. We missed being together physically but were pleased with how many people joined by Zoom and have watched the video ( Special appreciation to all who contributed their stories, their voices, and their hearts to making this year’s memorial meaningful.

We remember the 14 women who died in Montreal and the 10 women who have been killed in PEI since 1989. We remember the thousands of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls across Canada. We remember and honour all who suffer gender-based sexual violence. We honour the courage and resilience of survivors everywhere and commit to helping them thrive.
