We have heard over and over again from MPs and decision-makers that their constituents and Canadians in general don’t care about global issues. We know that this isn’t the case and want you to tell them why you care about Canada working to ensure that the world is free of poverty, and why it is so important that we #ReachEveryChild.

why light up monuments in red

Be part of the international movement and light Canada up in red in support of World Tuberculosis (TB) Day!

expert fact

For over 9,000 years we have been fighting against tuberculosis (TB). With great efforts, we’ve made progress - TB is now preventable and curable. However, action is needed to expand efforts to prevent and cure it as it remains the world’s deadliest infectious disease with more than 4,000 people dying of TB every day. It’s time we end this epidemic – once and for all.

secret tip

Send your light-up request to landmarks at least 6 weeks in advance

World Tuberculosis Day is March 24, but the planning has already started, including the campaign to light up monuments in red. It is crucial to start early because it can take weeks or even months to get approval to light up a building or monument in red.

Help us make the fight against tuberculosis visible! Put in a request for one (or more) of your (or another) city’s monuments to be lit up in red on March 24, 2024.

How to get started?

The first step is to identify a Canadian landmark that can be illuminated. Then, make sure you're the only person making the request. Next, you'll need to research the process for your city and/or monument and ask for the monument to be lit in red for World TB Day.

For detailed instructions and to help you prepare your request, have a look at our guide or watch our video.
