Nominations for Outstanding Women

Our city councillor has passed this message on to us:

A new bilingual website will be launched on International Women’s Day, 2020 and we want you to be part of this historical and important initiative by nominating outstanding women from your ward!

This unique website will acknowledge and document with worldwide reach, local women whose achievements and contributions have enriched the quality of life for Ottawa’s citizens. It will also act as a beacon that will inspire young women; reflect Ottawa’s rich diversity; encourage city commemorations of women; and, promote local initiatives and organizations that recognize the positive value and impact of these women to our city, to our nation and/or globally.

Femmes remarquables Ottawa Distinguished Women is a collaborative volunteer initiative currently comprised of over 30 community leaders from various cultural communities and backgrounds with a shared passion for creating a lasting legacy and conduit for recognizing the outstanding contributions and professional achievements of exceptional women in Ottawa.

Attached is a Nomination Form along with an information sheet related to Eligibility and Criteria. Please feel free to nominate as many outstanding women that you feel deserve recognition.

More Sandbagging at Westboro
