Chilean-Canadian Memoria in Toronto

Click for the video on Facebook

On September 11, 1973 the Chilean military under General Pinochet brutally attacked the democratically elected Popular Unity Government, killing President Salvador Allende and established a military junta that suspended civilian rule and killed, imprisoned and tortured thousands of Chileans. It was from this baptism of fire that the Chilean Canadian community built and re-built itself.

On September 11, 2020 the TWHP will be holding a webinar about the churches and unions that campaigned to have Chilean refugees accepted into Canada and the history of the Chilean Canadian community in Toronto.
