Join with the Catholic university chaplaincies of Toronto as they witness for life in our nation's capital
What is the March for Life?
The National March Life is a forum for Canadians of all ages and denominations who wish to express their belief that human life begins at conception and ends at natural death. With abortion available on-demand in Canada up until the moment of birth and euthanasia now legal across the country, raising awareness of issues surrounding the value of each human life and the dignity inherent therein, has never been more important.
