Women’s History Month is a national celebration each October that highlights the role women have played in Canada’s rich history. Ontario is now accepting nominations for its annual Leading Women/Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition program that celebrates the contributions of women and girls across the province who are improving the lives of others through their work, activism or volunteer activities.
Individuals, organizations, schools and community groups are encouraged to contact MPP Laura Albanese’s Office for information on how they can nominate outstanding York South-Weston area women and girls for this award. The nomination period begins in October 2015 and closes January 22, 2016. Please submit the form to MPP Laura Albanese's Office, well in advance of due date.
The Ontario Government is proud to work with women’s groups and community organizations across the province to support women and girls, advance women’s equality, support their safety and improve their economic security.
"There are many girls and women in this community who are everyday heroes. I am glad that the Leading Women/Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition Program honours their outstanding efforts and gives them the acknowledgement they so richly deserve." - Laura Albanese, MPP York South-Weston
