“Canadians deserve to be safe in their communities. Today, marks the first National Day Against Gun Violence in Canada, which is to be held annually on the first Friday of June. Gun violence has devastating impacts on our communities, and today we hope to bring awareness to this issue and foster a national discussion about the causes and effects of gun violence in our communities. No single program or initiative can tackle the challenge of gun violence on its own. Awareness initiatives like the National Day Against Gun Violence is one element of the government’s comprehensive plan to keep Canadians safe.”

– the Honorable Marco Mendicino, Minister of Public Safety, June 2023


This one-time, city-wide funding opportunity will support initiatives and activities that promote peace and the reduction of gun violence in the City of Toronto.
