The following calendar of observances remind us of the rich diversity of our
union and our communities and encourages us to be culturally aware when providing care to our patients. The calendar also invites us to reflect on how we might support
initiatives to advance equitable access to the social
determinants of health.
As you scroll through the calendar you will note
the recognition of a number multi-faith and multicultural days (in black text) and
the listing of various commemorative events or days (in berry text). This
list is by no means exhaustive but reflects one aspect of the diversity of our
membership (and our communities) and a few of the many celebrations and events
that mark the year.
International Women’s Day is an opportunity to reflect on the everyday activism of women – here and around the world. To commemorate the day we invite all of you to take some time to explore
Rise Up! – a digital archive of feminist activism in Canada from the 1970s to the 1990s – part of a worldwide wave of liberation and anti-oppression movements that won some victories, changed some attitudes and radically altered the gendered and political landscape.
