SHOUT Canada is a grassroots, national, and non-profit organization that operates under the guidance of a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors.
It was established by a group of compassionate university students who took part in the transformative "March for Remembrance and Hope" and "March of the Living" Holocaust study programs. Through these experiences, they delved into a history of immense suffering, leading them to share a collective mission: to enlighten Canadians about genocide and foster respectful and inclusive communities.
Upon returning to Canada, fueled by their desire to make a difference, they came together and formed SHOUT (Students Helping Others Understand Tolerance) or ÉCT (Étudiants pour la Compréhension de la Tolérance). This organization was born from their passion to promote understanding, empathy, and tolerance in society.
