This event kicks off a year-long campaign to mark the upcoming 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The City of Markham is a signatory of the Canadian Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism and Discrimination (CCMARD), CCMARD‘s main objective is to promote and protect human rights and divesity. As part of their ongoing commitment to human rights, the City of Markham and the Race Relations Committee will be proclaiming December 10th as International Human Rights Day and will be hosting a flag raising ceremony.
We are one in dignity and Rights.
The event will bring together the residents of Markham and surrounding communities to increase their knowledge regarding Human Rights in Canada and around the world. The event will have engaging speakers including Mayor Frank Scarpitti, Regional Councillor Joe Li and Councillor Kanapathi
