From the Montreal Massacre to the Incel Movement: Exploring the current gender-based threat of violence
In honour of the women who died 30 years ago at the Ecole Polytechnique, and to raise awareness of a possible threat of mass violence against women, we are hosting a panel discussion focusing on the “Involuntary Celebate” or “Incel” movement. The deadly Toronto Van attack recently brought this phenomenon to the forefront. What is this movement? Who is involved? And what can we do to prevent this new form of hate crime and promote healthy communities?
Coffee and information tables at 9 am, program starts at 9:30 am
- Marie-Hélène Rivest, Social Worker, Équipe Clinique Polarisation
- Alexander Corbeil, Research Advisor, Public Safety Canaday
- Dillon Black, Ottawa Coalition to End Violence Against Women

Panelists’ remarks will be in English only. Questions will be encouraged in both official languages.
