    First, we marched. Now, we move forward.

    On January 21, 2017 thousands of Canadians, many of us waving signs and wearing pointy-eared pink hats, gathered in cities and towns across the country to show solidarity with the massive Women’s March in Washington.

    Women, and their allies, in Canada, came to march, speak and make our voices heard. But it doesn’t end here - now is not the time to hang up our marching shoes - it’s time to get our friends, family, and community together and make history.

    Today, our mission is to inspire, unite and lead the charge for the advancement of women across Canada. Our vision is to make equality of women in Canada the new norm.

    All dollars raised will support Women's March Canada efforts moving forward. At this time, Women's March Canada, while registered as a not for profit organization, is not a registered charity and we are unable to issue official donation receipts for income tax purposes.

    Our organization needs community support to keep going!

    Help us have consistent, year-round funding, donate monthly.

    Please march forward with us.

  • What Canadians Can Do After Charlottesville

    You might feel helpless right now, but you don’t have to. You can make a difference.

    The “Unite the Right” rally descended on Charlottesville, Virginia to spread their message of hate, racism and anti-Semitism. A counter-protest was held. A driver drove into a crowd and killed 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injured at least 19 others. Solidarity protests and vigils have been taking place all over the United States, and several have begun popping up all over Canada, as well.

  • Letter Writing Campaigns: How To Make Change Happen

    Our members of parliament, members of provincial parliament, and town/city councillors have a unique job requirement—they must cast a vote on issues that affect their constituents, and try to vote with that in mind. They're not mind-readers. They can only vote based on the information they have. This is why it's important that you contact your political representative to let them know how you feel about whatever is at stake.
