Due to the significant risks of the Omicron wave to the health and safety of our supporters, families, and communities, we have decided to postpone Moose Hide Campaign Day from February 10, to Thursday May 12, 2022.
We are humbled that well over 100,000 Canadians have already registered for the day, and there are thousands of champions across the nation actively engaged in supporting Moose Hide Campaign Day. We will continue to work together to ensure that Moose Hide Campaign Day is an opportunity for all Canadians to stand together in ceremony, reconciliation and solidarity to end violence against women and children.
If you have already registered for the day, you will remain registered.
We look forward to what will be an important milestone towards our collective vision of a country free of violence towards all women and children.

Co-founders of the Moose Hide Campaign
Moose Hide Campaign Day is a day of ceremony. It’s a day where all Canadians are called to join together to take a stand against violence towards women and children and to take practical steps for our collective journey of reconciliation.
What started 11 years ago with a small gathering of men and boys intent on raising awareness of the crisis of violence against Indigenous woman and children, has now become a national ceremony inviting all Canadians to join together to end violence against all women and children.
On Moose Hide Campaign Day we challenge men and boys--and we invite all Canadians--to fast together from sunrise to sunset to deepen our experience and resolve to create safe families, communities and a safe country for all women and children.
Fasters will be supported on their fasting journey throughout the day—Learn more about fasting here
Join Moose Hide Campaign Day via our livestream to witness and engage in traditional ceremonies, hear from keynote speakers and the campaign co-founders and to participate in interactive online workshops with traditional knowledge keepers and facilitators.
Moose Hide Campaign Day will be held online with the guidance of traditional knowledge keepers.
And we invite you to hold or join your own local Moose Hide Campaign Day event or ceremony to align with the livestream from Victoria, BC.
Also join the in-person Walk to End Violence in Victoria, BC, or hold or join your own Walk to End Violence in your community.
Supporters are encouraged to wear and share the moose hide pins on the day (and every day!) and to organize events within their organizations, schools or communities. Reach out to us to find out about our “Ambassador” training sessions to help you coordinate your own local Moose Hide Campaign Day ceremonies/events.
Registration for Moose Hide Campaign Day is now open and participation is always free!
