Malala Yousafzai To Visit Ottawa

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today Malala Yousafzai will visit Canada next week.

She will address Parliament next Wednesday and will officially receive the honorary Canadian citizenship bestowed upon her in 2014.

At 15 years old, Malala Yousafzai was the target of Taliban assassins after she became an outspoken advocate for the right of girls to learn and to attend school.

She has since become an international spokesperson for girls’ education and the rights of women and girls. In recognition of this work, she was named a co-recipient of the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.
