First Light Gala – Sponsorship

First Light Gala – Sponsorship

Since its creation in 1977, The Canadian Center for Victims of Torture (CCVT) has assisted more than 22,000 survivors of torture transition from victimhood to empowered members of their family and community. CCVT supports survivors in the process of successful integration into Canadian society, works for their protection and integrity, and raises awareness of the continuing effects of torture and war on survivors and their families.

Every year we invite our supporters, staff, volunteers and community members to come together for an evening to celebrate the lives transformed through our solidarity – to triumph over torture and war. Our 350 guests of medical and legal professionals, business and political leaders and generous supporters of CCVT enjoy a night of excellent dining, entertainment and inspiring talks from our keynote speakers and survivors of torture and war.
