Womens History Month

Women's History Month

October is Women’s History Month in Canada.  It is a time for Canadians to celebrate the achievements of women and girls as trailblazers throughout our history.  It is a time to learn about the contributions women have made that have shaped our way of life.  When women and girls bring their passion, energy and talents to everything they do, there is no stopping them!  Looking back over the past 150 years since Confederation, countless women have done exactly that: harnessed their power, found their voice, and claimed their place in our country’s proud history. (Status of Women Canada, 2017)


Today, women, girls, men, and boys continue the quest for equality and inclusion in all areas of Canadian life.  Honour their actions and celebrate the courageous women and girls who inspire you to #ClaimYourPlace.

Join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #ClaimYourPlace and share photos, videos and words of inspiration. Share your stories of finding your voice on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Tell the world how you #ClaimYourPlace! (Status of Women Canada, 2017)
