Freedom Day, a one-day event at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto, will be held Tuesday, September 18 from 11:30-1:00pm. This free event was created to commemorate the life of Holocaust survivor and human rights advocate Simon Wiesenthal and to carry on his legacy of tolerance, justice and human rights. Now in its 9th year, Freedom Day has expanded into a highly anticipated, multicultural celebration of Canadian values. Over 3,000 students from public, Catholic and private school boards from across the greater Toronto area and beyond gather annually at Yonge-Dundas Square to actively participate in the festivities and be inspired to take action in making Canada a more inclusive, multicultural society.
