International Women’s Day Rally and March

This year International Women’s Day events continue to build on the great solidarity and energy of the Women’s Marches around the world earlier this year.  Despite attempts to divide and disempower us, we are Uniting and Mobilizing more than ever!

This year’s theme is PERSISTENCE WITH SOLIDARITY TOWARD EQUALITY.  Please join us in Toronto for the IWD Rally and March:

Toronto March 11

11am – IWD Rally (New location this year). University of Toronto Medical Sciences Building Auditorium, 1 King’s College Circle (see map on poster attached).

Look for the Unifor flags!



On March 8, we celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) to recognize the roles and contributions of women world-wide, while acknowledging that the plight of women is not equitable, or equal.

To amplify the demand for Trudeau’s government to move women one step closer towards gender equality, Unifor is calling for two key solutions to be implemented immediately – establish a national funded public child care program and paid domestic violence leave legislation.

Every member is encouraged to add their voice and send an electronic letter to their Member of Parliament. With a just two clicks our union can deliver a united message to tell the government to enact paid domestic violence leave and fund a national child care program here.

In addition to this online lobbying action, Unifor is donating a total of $146,000 to women’s shelters nationwide to support survivors of domestic violence. Donations will be distributed by members of locals to shelters across the country. For more info on our union’s commitments for IWD read the statement at
