The theme for this year’s March On Vancouver is Resist! Persist!
This is the third year that people of all backgrounds have come together to march to empower, inspire, unite and lead the charge for advancement of women across Canada and the world.
Here is a list of all the marches taking place in communities across BC:
- Comox Valley (420 Cumberland Road, Courtenay), 10:30 am to 12:30 pm;
- Fraser Valley (Ann Davis Transition Society – 9046 Young Road, Chilliwack), 11 am to 1 pm;
