Light the Night against Violence

On December 6, across the country, we’re lighting the night against violence. Buildings, bridges and monuments will be lit to draw attention to the need for action on violence against women: 25 years after the murders of women at L’Ecole Polytechnique, violence is still with us.



The Pearson Peace Medal

The Pearson Peace Medal

Each year the United Nations Association in Canada (UNA-Canada) honours a Canadian for his or her outstanding achievements in the field of international service and understanding. The Pearson Peace Medal is awarded to a Canadian who has personally contributed, through their working lives and voluntary commitments, to those causes to which Lester B. Pearson devoted his distinguished career: aid to the developing world, mediation between those confronting one another with arms, succour to refugees and others in need, equal rights and justice for all humanity, and peaceful change through world law and world organization. A jury of eminent Canadians selects the recipient of honour. The Medal is presented, often by the Governor-General of Canada, on or about United Nations Day, October 24, or Human Rights Day, December 10.
