IMD – 1993:

IMD – 1994:
International Men’s Day 1994 was referred to as the second annual IMD, which saw independent observations in USA, France (possibly), Canada, Australia, and Malta.
IMD – 1995:
After the success of his first two International Men’s day events Oaster tells that he became increasingly persecuted by women’s groups at his university because, he stated, they disliked his involvment in IMD and men’s issues generally. As a result Oaster decided to hold his next IMD away from his local area and aimed to hold a conference in Toronto, Canada in 1995. Unfortunately the event was hastily organised and the weather in Toronto was cold, which led to a failure of attendees to turn up. This was an embarrassment to Oaster, who decided to discontinue his involvment in the event. This led to a decline of participation in IMD, with many organizations ceasing to observe the event except for a Canadian group who (according to anecdote) held thier last recorded observation in 1996, along with the Maltese Association for Men’s Rights which became the single remaining organisation to continue observing the event through to the present. The following are closing accounts of the failed Canada event:
