The Top 25 Women of Influence is a celebration of Canada’s most accomplished women role models. The recipients represent a variety of sectors, career stages, and contributions to women’s advancement. Their unique accomplishments are impossible to compare against each other, which is why the Top 25 is designed as a celebration rather than a ranking. In 2017 and 2018 we honoured a group of inspiring women from across the country.

Applications are now closed for 2019. Thank you for your contributions!


While there are many who qualify as women of influence, we are specifically seeking out Canadian women who have had a notable achievement during 2019. This can include:


INSPIRATION:  Reaching an impressive height in their career, breaking through barriers to become visible examples of what women are capable of.

INITIATIVES:  Using their influence for the benefit of others, especially women and girls, either at a community level, or on the world stage.

ENGAGEMENT:  Giving a voice to the challenges women face in their life and careers, helping to initiate important conversations that can lead to lasting change.

The sectors we aim to represent include CORPORATE, ENTREPRENEUR, NOT-FOR-PROFIT, MEDIA/ENTERTAINMENT, and PUBLIC SECTOR (however candidates are not required to fit into one of these categories to be selected).   

If you or someone you know fits this description, we’d love to hear from you! Nominations close on December 13, 2019. Winners will be announced on February 4, 2020.
