To celebrate International Day of the Girl in 2019, Plan is challenging Canadians to know their facts from fiction when it comes to girls' rights and equality. The organization will showcase new data through a pop-up game show set called Fact or Fact Check.


Plan International Canada led the global movement to make International Day of the Girl a reality, garnering all-party support from the Canadian Parliament and the United Nations. Since 2012, we have celebrated it annually on October 11, igniting a global mass movement to amplify girls' voices, advocate for their rights, and elevate their position in society.
