Please join us as we march together to celebrate the Charter of Rights & Freedoms.
We Remember. Images of troubling histories such as residential schools, Chinese Head Tax, the Komagata Maru incident, and Japanese internment once wounded Canada's past. Amidst Canada's many dark moments, many brave Canadians struggled for equality and rose to inspire seeds of change in our country.
The Charter of Rights and Freedoms has transformed Canada. Troubling images of histories such as residential schools, Chinese Head Tax, the Komagata Maru incident, and the Japanese internment once wounded Canada’s past.
From these scars, the Charter was born on April 17, 1982—a legislation that now guarantees equal rights and freedoms for all Canadian citizens, no matter their background.
Even so, discrimination and injustice persists. Our work is not done. We must march onwards to reaffirm how far we need to go.
Walk with us.
Participate in a defining moment.
Let’s march for freedom.
