Nominations are Open for the Leading Women and Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition Program!

Published on October 25, 2016

Do you know a woman or girl who is making a difference in our community?

Nominations are now open for the Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition Program and the Leading Women Building Communities Recognition Program.

Since being introduced in 2006, the Leading Women/Leading Girls Building Communities program has honoured over 450 Ontario women for their leadership, their community service, and their dedication to improving the lives of others.

I am honoured to have the opportunity to recognize women in our community who are dedicated to community service and inspiring others. Past Kitchener-Waterloo honourees have been professors, business leaders, artists and advocates.

Watch Leading Girls honouree, Maddie Cranston, and I talk about the 2014 honourees on Rogers TV below.

Nominees must:

  •  meet the eligibility criteria outlined in the nominations package
  • submit a completed nomination form (please do not fill out MPP contact information)
  • include at least two letters of recommendation with their nomination form
  • reside in the provincial riding of Kitchener-Waterloo (to check riding by address, click here)

Please submit completed nomination packages by email to [email protected] by Friday, January 13th, 2017 for consideration.

Nomination forms for the Leading Women and Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition Program can be downloaded here (English) and here (French).

If you have any questions or require assistance in filling out the application form, please contact Carly Greco in my constituency office at 519-725-3477 or [email protected].

I look forward to celebrating the many achievements of women and girls in our community.

All the best,


Catherine Fife, MPP
