Minto Park
315 Elgin St., Ottawa, Ontario
On 6th December 1989, 14 young students at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal were murdered. They were murdered because they were women.

Each year, we gather to hold a vigil commemorating the victims of the Montreal Massacre, as well as each life taken by violence against women and gender-based violence in our community since the previous year.

The Women's Event Network of Ottawa seeks to raise awareness of the phenomenon of gender-based violence in our society, including the thousands of missing and murdered Indigenous women and youth. This is an opportunity to acknowledge the courage and strength of survivors, and to reflect on how we can eliminate violence against women and gender-based violence in all forms.

In addition to the outdoor vigil, First United will continue its annual tradition of holding a non-religious candle lighting ceremony to honor and grieve all women who have suffered acts of violence.

Outdoor Vigil: 6:00 p.m. at the Women’s Monument at Minto Park
(Elgin & Gilmour)

Post-vigil Gathering: 7:00 p.m. at PSAC Building — hot drinks and community tables (233 Gilmour St)

Indoor Vigil: 7:30 pm at First United & All Saints Westboro Churches
(347 Richmond Rd.)
