If you were downtown by Union Station or Scotiabank Arena on Thursday, September 20th and you were navigating through a flood of youth, you know WE Day is back in town. WE Day is a massive youth event bringing together 20,000 students and educators from more than 1,200 schools who made a difference in their communities across Ontario.
WE Day is free of charge to students and educators across Canada thanks to the support of partners RBC and TELUS. This means students can’t buy a ticket to WE Day Toronto—youth from across the province earn their way by taking action on one local and one global issue of their choice.
The event was co-hosted by Miss Piggy and Nick Robinson alongside Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Celebrity Marauders, Michael “Pinball” Clemons, Ann Curry, Olivia Holt, Millie Davis, Adam Devine, Olivia Holt, Jack & Jack, Craig and Marc Kielburger, LaurDIY, The Muppets, Penny Oleksiak, Johnny Orlando, Mason Ramsey, Jessie Reyez, Lilly Singh, Jacob Tremblay, Margaret Trudeau, Spencer West, Why Don’t We.
If you missed it, the event was taped for a broadcast special that will premiere on Saturday, November 24, 2018 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV.
