Women of Impact in Canada is an online gallery celebrating women’s achievements and contributions to Canadian society. To be included in the gallery, candidates must meet at least one of the criteria outlined below.

Each woman of impact must have:

  • attained a high level of achievement, as determined by national or international standards;
  • advanced a social or humanitarian cause with a national impact in a leadership role;
  • achieved recognition as an expert or leader in a specific domain;
  • emerged as a pioneer in a new or non-traditional sector (including as the first in a specific field); or
  • contributed in a significant manner to events in Canada’s history.

Nomination form

Once your nomination has been received, Women and Gender Equality Canada (WAGE) will review the nomination to determine whether the nominee meets the criteria. If your nominee is selected, WAGE will create a biography using the information provided and complete additional research to ensure accuracy and consistency. WAGE is responsible for ensuring biographies are factually accurate and that appropriate permissions (including photo copyrights) are secured before publication.

WAGE does not collect any personal information through its website, including email addresses. We regret that we therefore cannot provide email responses to submitted nominations.
