Ontario Tech prepares for upcoming Moose Hide Campaign

Program is a nationwide Indigenous-led grassroots movement to end violence against women and children


In early May, Ontario Tech University will be embracing the Moose Hide Campaign, an Indigenous-led, grassroots movement of men, boys and all Canadians—standing up to end violence against women and children.

Half of all women in Canada have experienced at least one incident of violence since the age of 16; it's far worse for Indigenous women. 

Ambassador Campus Initiative

Ontario Tech is working to earn designation as a Moose Hide Campaign Ambassador Campus. By becoming an Ambassador Campus, the university can help promote the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Inquiry Calls for Justice.

The university is dedicated to helping build a safer society for all by supporting the Moose Hide Campaign and its goals to:

  • Address the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
  • Build healthier masculinities.
  • Speak out about domestic violence.
Get involved
  • Take the Moose Hide Campaign online pledge to end violence. You have the option to submit a verbal, written or video pledge.
