Women's March Canada believes in immigrant and refugee rights regardless of status or country of origin. We believe migration is a human right and that no human being is illegal.
Women are under-represented globally, adversely affecting our collective health, safety, and economic security. Women’s March Canada seeks fair and just representation of women locally, nationally, and internationally.
