Nominate Outstanding Women from our Community

I am incredibly excited about a new website launching on International Women’s Day 2020 to recognize exceptional women from Ottawa.

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.

A nominee may only be nominated for one category:

  • Lifetime Contribution
  • Community Pillars
  • Women of Inspiration

For more details, please see the Eligibility Requirements and Criteria for Award Selection.

Completed Nomination Forms may be submitted to or Please feel free to nominate as many outstanding women that you feel deserve recognition. The deadline for Nominations is January 17, 2020.

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.
