Provincial Marches

If you live too far from Ottawa to attend the National March For Life™. you may still be able to stand up for human rights at a local March for Life.  In addition to the March in Ottawa, all provinces except Ontario and Quebec (whose focus is on the nearby National Capital) hold regional Marches for Life at their provincial legislatures. Last year, more than 30,000 Canadians participated in the national and local marches combined, signalling that abortion is by far the greatest human rights and social justice issue in Canada. These normally occur at the provincial legislature, but not always.

Below is info for each provincial march for life event.

For various reasons, this provincial March for Life will not take place in 2016. There is a plan to continue it again in 2017, but in the meantime all pro-life Saskatchewanians are encouraged to unite spiritually, through prayer, with the tens of thousands of Canadians who will be at the National March For Life in Ottawa, and in other provinces.
