March Start Point
March begins noon at Parliament Hill.
Be mindful that this event is peaceful and family friendly.
We are asking people bring items for the Basketeers, who provide some of the simple necessities and niceties of life, bundled in a basket and gifted to women as they embark on the next chapter of their lives.
Learn more about them at https://basketeers.org/
From Parliament Hill, we will head down Wellington to Bank, Bank to Laurier, Laurier to Bronson, and Bronson to the Bronson Centre. Consult map above for visual version of the route.
Who Can March?
The march is not only open to women. It is open to any individual who supports the notion that "Women's Rights are Human Rights"
Marcher Meetup Points
There are some specific groups meeting up to march together.
One such group are women marching together to advocate for the election of more women in 2018. To join this group, and march in support of more women in politics, please meet on the Hill at the statue of the "Famous Five".
World Changing Kids, an organization dedicated to character development, leadership skills, and community building through active kindness, will be meeting behind the East Block of Parliament Hill.
For more details and tips for people marching with kids, please see their link
Our event will begin with the Ogimaakwewak Singers. In respecting tradition, we are asking that no one commence marching until these women make it to the front of the March.
We are also asking that any traditionally marginalized people, including people of colour, First Nations peoples, LGBTQ2S, and people living with disabilities, be allowed to occupy the lead of the march, if it is of their choosing.
