The government of Ontario is recognizing the women and girls who are making a difference in their communities. Nominations are now open for the annual Leading Women/Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition program, an award for women and girls who are improving the lives of others through volunteer work.

“The leadership of women and girls is essential to creating a fair society and strong economy in Ontario. I am honoured to recognize women and girls in my community through the Leading Women/Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition Program,” said Kiwala.
