Dec. 6 - We Remember: Massacre at l'École Polytechnique

December 6

National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

This year marks the 25th anniversary of what has come to be known as the Montreal Massacre.

On the anniversary of this tragic day, Women’s College Hospital will reflect on violence against women and remember the women who have tragically lost their lives to gender-based violence.
