CSIH is very pleased with this year’s WHD Canada media coverage as it has reached millions of Canadians in both official languages.

This included extensive print and online coverage with 40 national and local news outlets covering WHD events that took place across Canada. Additionally, WHD events received TV and radio attention from national and local news outlets. WHD hashtags (#WHDCanada2017 #WHD2017 #NOhep #LightsUp4Hep #ShowYourFace) were also used on multiple social media platforms.
