Ontario is celebrating International Women’s Week by recognizing two women in Trinity-Spadina for their leadership in improving the lives of others in our community.
In its 11th year, Ontario’s Leading Women, Leading Girls, Building Communities Awards have recognized more than 745 exceptional women and girls across the province who have demonstrated leadership and improved the lives of others through their work, activism or volunteer activities.
This year’s recipients from Trinity-Spadina are:
Celebrating the achievements of women and girls is part of the government's four-part plan to build Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
“These extraordinary women have demonstrated leadership in fostering positive changes within our communities. I thank them for continuing to be an inspiration to us all.”
— Han Dong, MPP (Trinity-Spadina)
“International Women’s Week invites us to recognize and celebrate the important contributions women and girls make to their communities. The women and girls honoured this year are role models, mentors and shining examples of the real impact one person can make in creating a stronger and fairer Ontario for all.”
— Tracy MacCharles, Minister Responsible for Women’s Issues
