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.

Women's March Victoria acknowledges that we are gathering on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen speaking peoples. We acknowledge that the Songhees and Esquimalt nations have stewarded these lands and waters since time immemorial. We live, work, and play on Lekwungen and Saanich territories. These peoples have never stopped stewarding the land, and we all have a better quality of life due to the work they’ve done and continue to do.
This year we will gather at the BC Legislature Building at 11am have an Indigenous acknowledgement ceremony at 11:20am and then meet the organizing team of Women's March Victoria. Together we will march to Centennial Square at 11:45am, where we will meet grassroots organizers from our communities.
This is a trans-inclusive event. All genders welcome!
Stay tuned for more updates before Jan. 19, 2019.
