Celebrating the achievements of women and girls is part of our government’s four-part plan to build Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
“It is an honour to celebrate these outstanding women and girls. Their leadership makes a real difference in Newmarket-Aurora. Each year this event in our community grows and I look forward to recognizing the achievements of even more outstanding women and girls from Newmarket-Aurora next year.” — Chris Ballard, MPP Newmarket-Aurora
