Famous 5 Ottawa and Women and Gender Equality Canada invite you to this free, online event in commemoration of the 92nd anniversary of the Person’s Case. The event is an intimate conversation with three inspiring leaders on building Canada’s future that includes meaningful reconciliation, diversity and equal opportunity for underrepresented Canadians

Ninety-two years ago, women were deemed persons in Canada. We’ve come a long way but we know more needs to be done to ensure that all women of diverse backgrounds are included in Canada’s story.
