Nominations are open for the 18th annual YWCA Muskoka Women of Distinction Awards



Nominations are officially open for YWCA Muskoka’s 18th annual Women of Distinction Awards—a signature event recognized nationally among Canada’s most prestigious awards for women.

“Our community has much to be proud of this year—we’ve successfully navigated some significant challenges and continually come together to find solutions and build partnerships. And at the heart of this progress, you will find brilliant, compassionate and strong women,” said Hannah Lin, Executive Director of YWCA Muskoka. “Women of Distinction is our chance to recognize and celebrate these women who create positive change in Muskoka and who inspire and empower others to do the same.”

Residents of Muskoka are encouraged to nominate the women in their lives whose achievements contribute to the well-being of Muskoka. There are eight categories to choose from: Young Women of Distinction; Mentorship; Arts, Culture and Creative Energy; Health, Sports and Wellness; Community Development and Social Activism; Business Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Lifetime Achievement; and Transformational Award.

The deadline to nominate a Woman of Distinction is at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 20, 2019. Nominations can be made online at or at the YWCA Offices at 440 Ecclestone Drive in Bracebridge. You can also call the YWCA Muskoka at 705-645-9827 or email [email protected] for more information.

The awards will be presented on October 25 at the YWCA Muskoka’s 18th annual Women of Distinction Gala – a fundraising event that ensures the YWCA can champion positive change for women and girls in Muskoka through leadership, education and advocacy.
