The Canadian Tribute to Human Rights

Other Rallies and Events

Rallies, vigils and protests at the Canadian Tribute to Human Rights have been held since the unveiling of the monument in 1990 and have been increasing in frequency in recent years. Organizations and groups wishing to hold an event at the monument are free to do so, but are required to advise the City of Ottawa on whose property the monument is located. The City in turn will advise the CTHR Board, the police, the traffic authorities and any others at their discretion.
