January 29th, 2023 is the National Day of Remembrance of the Quebec City Mosque Attack and Action Against Islamophobia.
Canadians are invited to join Muslim communities across Canada in mourning, and in standing together against Islamophobia and hate.
On January 29th, 2017, a tragic Islamophobic attack took place at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City.
A gunman opened fire on worshipers, killing 6 and seriously injuring 19 more.
In 2022, the federal government officially designated January 29 as a National Day of Remembrance of the Quebec City Mosque Attack and Action Against Islamophobia.
Muslim communities initiated the Green Square Campaign in January of 2020 as an act of solidarity and hope.
The campaign encourages everyone to wear a patch of green fabric from January 25 to January 29 in memory of the victims and to be in solidarity with those who continue to be impacted by consequences of this hateful violence.
