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.
