Each year in Ontario camps, schools, hospitals, police groups, and cities come together on June 1 to celebrate a provincial holiday they call Peace Tree Day. Peace Tree Day, inspired by the award-winning film The Peace Tree by Mitra Sen, is an annual festival for children and families of every culture and faith to celebrate peace and diversity TOGETHER!
Children around the world create Peace Trees that highlight symbols from all our cultures and faiths on one tree to reflect the beauty of “diversity in unity”.
