Trung Sisters Commemoration Ceremony 2017

Saturday March 25th, 2017
Oakdale Community Centre
350 Grandravine Drive Toronto (Jane St. & Sheppard Ave.)

This year, to strengthen our collaboration with the community, VWAT Family Services will partner with Vietnamese Association of Toronto (VAT), Hội Bảo Tồn Văn Hóa Hùng Vương and Hội Cựu Sĩ Quan/Sinh Viên Trừ Bị Thủ Đức to make this day happen. The event will include the Flag Ceremony and the Main Ceremony.


The Trưng Sisters were Vietnamese military leaders who rebelled against the Chinese rule for three years, and are regarded as national heroines of Vietnam. Their names were Trưng Trắc and Trưng Nhị. The Trưng Sisters are highly revered in Vietnam, as they led the first resistance movement against the occupation of the Chinese after 247 years of domination.

Even though the Trưng Sisters’ revolt against the Chinese was almost 2,000 years ago, its legacy in Vietnam remains. The two sisters are considered to be a national symbol in Vietnam. They represent Vietnam’s independence. They are often depicted as two women riding two giant war elephants, and are often seen leading their followers into battle against the Chinese. The Trưng Sisters were more than two sisters who gave up their life for their country, they are powerful symbols of Vietnamese resistance and freedom.

Annually, VWAT Family Services organizes this event not only to express our gratitude for the heroines but also to preserve and share Vietnamese culture in Canada.

“All the male heroes bowed their heads in submission;

Only the two sisters proudly stood up to avenge the country”

15th century Poem
