Refugee Rights Day Vigil

Tuesday, April 4, 2023
4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Join us in person on Tuesday April 4, 2023 4:30pm – 5:30pm for a Refugee Rights Day Vigil to mourn the loss of refugee rights in Canada due to the expansion of the Safe Third Country Agreement at our border.

Come and sign a book of condolences, and bring along a candle or a flower to place on an altar to honour those being denied access to Canada, and those who may experience serious harm during their (14-day) journey to protection “within” our border.

This is a free event. No registration is required. All are welcome!

  • When: Tuesday, April 4th at 4.30pm
  • Where: MP Marco Mendicino’s office, Minister of Public Safety, 511 Lawrence Avenue West (SW corner of Bathurst and Lawrence), Toronto
