Did you know that October has been designated Women’s History Month in Canada? So now is the perfect time to pay special tribute to the women who have marked our past and who continue to shape our future, whether it be in economics, society, politics, science or the arts. You undoubtedly have some personal experience with women who are strong leaders and destined to have a lasting influence on our society.

Until next time!
