In recognition of the Government of Canada’s responsibility to promote public safety;
In recognition of the need to raise awareness of Canada’s missing;
In recognition of the many countries that have already declared a National Missing Persons Day; and
In recognition of providing a day of remembrance, consolation, and call to action to support the families and friends of the tens of thousands of Canadians who go missing each year.
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to declare and create a National Missing Persons Day, during which communities across the country could gather in remembrance of their missing loved ones and advocate for resources to reduce the frequency of disappearances and to support those left behind.
