    Moose Hide Campaign Day

    ๐ŸซŽ Today’s the Day! ๐ŸซŽ

    WVC stands with the Moose Hide Campaign to end violence towards women and children.

    The Moose Hide Campaign acknowledges that violence in any form is unacceptable, no matter the gender. It highlights the significant number of women affected by violence and emphasizes the crucial role of men and boys in tackling this issue. The Moose Hide campaign also recognizes that approaches centred on “shame and blame” are ineffective solutions.

    People of all ages, genders, and cultures are invited to participate in our campaign actions.

    Red Dress Day 2024

    Today, we observe the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). On this solemn day, we come together to honour and remember our stolen mothers, sisters, and cousins. It is a distressing reality that Indigenous women and girls in Canada are five times more likely to be victims of violence than any other demographic. 

    We encourage our students and communities to wear red as a unified gesture of solidarity and commitment to raising awareness. No More Stolen Sisters. ๐Ÿชถ โœ‹๐Ÿฝ ๐Ÿ›‘โ—๏ธ

    World Water Day 2024

     Join us in celebrating World Water Day by recognizing the importance of the Muskeg.  

    โ€œMuskeg,โ€ originating from the Ininรญmowin (maskek) and Anishinaabemowin (mashkiig) languages, refers to a northern landscape characterized by a wet environment, abundant vegetation, and peat moss deposits. It encompasses various wetlands in the boreal zone, including bogs, fens, swamps, and mires. These peatlands cover around 1.2 million km2 in Canada, constituting 12% of the country’s surface area.
