150+ Canadians Day 122: Canadian Voice of Women

The Canadian Voice of Women for Peace contributes to peace by opposing violence and war. #Canada150

The Canadian Voice of Women for Peace (VOW Peace) was established in 1960 when women across Canada were worried about the threat of nuclear war and the effect of nuclear fallout on children from weapons testing. Based in Toronto, it has chapters in several provinces in Canada.

VOW Peace is a part of a network of other peace groups in Canada and around the world, all working together for a world without war. It was a founding partner in the Canadian Peace Alliance which has over 4 million supporters across the country.

Current priorities include stopping the bombing in Syria and Iraq, withdrawing Canadian troops from Ukraine, opening Canada’s borders to more refugees, and signing and ratifying the Arms Trade Treaty.
