United Nations Day marks the anniversary of the UN’s founding Charter which was ratified on October 24, 1945.
Each year, MacEwan University’s UN Committee and the UNA-Canada – Edmonton Branch welcome the public to a special celebration in recognition of United Nations Day, joining individuals, organizations and educational institutions around the globe in reaffirming the UN values of tolerance, mutual respect and human dignity. This annual celebration features music, guest speakers, the raising of the UN Flag with the assistance of Canadian Veterans in Peacekeeping and the release of white doves.
