National Day of Action Toolkit

DWD Canada has prepared a toolkit to help you plan, organize and lead a local event on our National Day of Action.

We're thrilled that so many of our supporters are organizing rallies throughout the country on November 4, 2015. The goal of the National Day of Action is to reinforce to our government representatives the importance of upholding the scope of the Supreme Court of Canada’s Carter decision on the right to die with dignity.

This short toolkit has been prepared to help you with the logistics of planning your local event. Specifically, it includes:

  • A sample rally schedule
  • Tips on time, location, choice of speakers, sound equipment
  • Rally chant examples
  • Preparation tips, including how to bring people out
  • Tips on dealing with the media, public relations, how to handle your signs and posters 

The community events you organize on our National Day of Action are critical to the multifold and mutually reinforcing approach we are taking, so we can ensure that Canadians can access physician assisted deaths come February 6, 2016.
