YWCA St. John's annual Women of Distinction Awards are designed to celebrate the achievements of women and give them a platform to share their stories in a way that empowers, inspires, and motivates others to learn, achieve, and participate. 

Women of Distinction Awards are presented locally by YWCA's across Canada to recognize the leadership of women who contribute to the development and well-being of other women and to the overall improvement of the community. Women of Distinction Awards are recognized across Canada as one of the most prestigious awards for women. We reinstated these awards in 2015, held in March to coincide with International Women's Day. 

A $20 Charitable Tax Receipt will be issued by Canada Helps upon purchasing a ticket.
