Silohoutte of woman

This year we will come together as a community, virtually, and honour the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. This day is not only an opportunity to reflect and honour the lost lives of 14 young women, but to also consider and take action against violence that people who identify as women in our communities face to this day.

The University of Waterloo, in partnership with the Canadian Federation of University Women Kitchener-Waterloo, is hosting a special ceremony of remembrance.

Speaking at the event will be:

  • Feridun Hamdullahpur, President and Vice-Chancellor;
  • Jean Becker, Interim Associate Vice-President, Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion;
  • Mary Wells, Dean of Engineering;
  • The Honourable Bardish Chagger, MP Waterloo;
  • Catherine Fife, MPP Kitchener-Waterloo
  • Anita Davis, President, Canadian Federation of University Women, KW; and
  • Sara Casselman, Executive Director, Sexual Assault Support Centre of Waterloo.

There will be a virtual candlelight vigil, where candles are lit and student participants will share information about each of the women who lost their lives. There will also be a moment of silence.

The event takes place on Friday, December 4 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on YouTube Live. Register with ticketfi.
